Lupe: Peeling Nopales

woman peeling nopales

And so this one, what are you doing here?

Oh, here we’re peeling the nopales and I don’t know how to do that and she knows how to do it and she said she does like a hundred of these back in her place and she was teaching me how to do it.  So, they’re my friends and they were... I met them here as I was leaving and then the next picture is of the detail of peeling of the nopal. Taking off all the thorns. So I tell them, “If I’m going to make a living out of that I’ll die” because I could just peel one in the time that it took her to peel five.
