Cuba Buried Alive Photo Essay
In this Feb. 5, 2014 photo, Divaldo Aguiar, who plays the part of Pachencho, left, lies inside a coffin as Carmen Zamora, who plays his widow, center, stands near the coffin, during the town's annual tradition, known as the Burial of Pachencho, at a cemetery in Santiago de Las Vegas, Cuba. A tractor pulls a trailer slowly through the streets to the cemetery in the early morning carrying Aguiar in a coffin, along with a four-piece tropical band and the white-haired woman pretending to be the bereaved widow weeping loudly for the "deceased."
