Quote du Jour

Pishtacos! -- the ravenous ghosts brought to Peru by white people. The word began to travel in whispers through the crowd. The conquistadors had brought the pishtacos to Cajamarca. The English had hammered them into the railroads. The Americans stored them in Coca-Cola vats. The city folk churned them into cement.

~ Maria Arana, Cellophane
