Ruta 40 - tire fence - HFF!

Ruta 40 - tire fence - HFF!
HFF and a sunny safe weekend, my friends!

Visitors of this "Difunta Correa shrine" at the famous Ruta 40 mainly pray to survive on the lonesome roads and deposit water bottles, believing, this helps not to die of thurst in the wilderness.

Difunta Correa (the late Correa, actually María Antonia Deolinda y Correa) was a woman who allegedly died of thirst in 1841 while looking for her husband in the desert of Argentina. However, thanks to the mother's milk, her child had not died. It has been found laying suckling on the dead mother's breast.

A lovely shot Berny. I like your moveable fence!
Interesting notes but what a sad story, although the mother's love at least allowed her baby to survive.

HFF and a good weekend to you
