Niños del Congo Mirador del Sur del Lago de Maracaibo / Children of Congo Mirador in the South of Lake Maracaibo

Congo Mirador es uno de los Pueblos de Agua del Sur del Lago de Maracaibo, es un poblado de palafitos, tiene su iglesia, su Plaza Bolívar, su ambulatorio, su licorería y hasta su estación de bomberos. Pero lo que más llama la atención son sus muchachitos, que nadan como peces en el agua y suelen trasladarse en bidones de gasolina, transformados como en “carritos” de agua, pero que manejan con sus bracitos. Ellos y el agua, el agua y ellos.

Congo Mirador is one of the Town of Water of South of Lake Maracaibo, it’s a site of stilt houses with its church, its Bolivar’s Square, its little hospital, its liquor store and even its firefighter station. But what is more striking are its kids, they swim like fish in the water and often move in drums of gasoline, processed as “trolleys” and they drive it around the lake with their arms. Them and the water, the water and they.
