Casa Xochiquetzal

Emergency bar in a combi/mini-bus, Nezahualcoyotl

It’s rare when something can move me to tears…okay, not that rare. I’m a regular crybaby but I couldn’t stop the tears after watching this short documentary on a sex workers retirement home (well, despite their age, some have not yet retired) in the Tepito neighborhood of Mexico D.F. It’s produced by Vice but don’t let that dissuade you, it’s very well done.

    wow this was sad and shocking..I mean I feel like I am looking at a mom type or grandmother I can not imagine them having to live that lifestyle.
    It is pretty scary they have to do that.
