eyes how cut paper could look like a painting. I experienced the
largeness of a giant kite as I walked over it in my socks and looked down
on it’s Mayan stories and intricate design. I knew los barrileteros worked all night for many nights over many months to make this most fragile art of tissue paper.
But I still couldn't quite picture the process of making such an enormous and collaborative piece of art. So I was very happy when Julio told me he could arrange for me to watch a group of kitemakers at work on Saturday night andthat he would also
arrange for me to stay with a family in Sumpango so I would have a place to catch some sleep and to eat.
