Puente Ruinas Train Station

    Puente Ruinas Train Station

    The afternoon sunlight reflecting off the rails highlights the last transaction before departing the station. While on the train I was bargaining through the open window for a hand made tapestry. Before settling on a price, the train started moving. The young woman tossed her tapestry into the open window and began to run alongside. I scrambled for the correct currency and quickly handed her the payment out the window as she ran. Several moments later, admiring her handiwork, I contemplated the trust she had extended to a total stranger...

    "You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough.
