I would love to talk to this guy, his stories must be full of amazing adventures. The way he expresses himself about the general is pretty intense and you can tell he had something to do with him. On my first trip to Mexico city I met a guy just like him Nicknamed “Pancho El Alto”, he was tall very old and looked like he knew a thing or two about war, he was my friend’s 98 year old great grandpa. When I met him he shook my hand very lightly while looking at me and didn’t say a word, he didn’t know who I was. He would wake up at 5 AM and walk around the house and even go outside on his own. I wanted to ask him a million questions, about the old days and the revolution, why he joined the lines of Emiliano Zapata, I could of talked to him for hours, but sadly he would talk about a lot of topics at the same time and then talk about the same thing when he was finished he would repeat the same story over and over again. But I didn’t care, I saw his pictures on his wall they told the story for him. The last day I was in Mexico city, we heard a bang on the door at around 5AM, scared we got up and opened the door it was Pancho El Alto. He had walked around four miles from his house to the house we were staying in just to say good bye to my friend and I. I was amazed, he sneaked out of his house without anyone knowing, risking his life just to wish us a good trip. It was a great experience, one that I will remember for ever.
