In this Feb. 5, 2014 photo, Divaldo Aguiar, who plays the part of Pachencho, in a mock funeral known as the Burial of Pachencho, lies inside a coffin as Carmen Zamora, who plays the part of his widow, puts her hand on his head, at a cemetery in Santiago de Las Vegas, Cuba. "Being reborn is the most beautiful thing there is in life," said Aguiar, who said he has played "Pachencho” for several years running. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)
