I Ran into this interesting individual at Parque Vargas in Puerto Limón, Costa Rica. I was intrigued by his contraption and had to converse with him. I see an engineer here, A true craftsman if you will. While many will ostracize people like this from society, these are the types that I cram to understand and learn from.
First off, it appears that he is wearing a Toga of sorts with a chain, all of which he put together himself. But just take a better gaze at his homemade guitar! There is an old record at the bottom, while the body appears to be the back of a wooden chair. Look at the way he has it strung up and strapped to his person. It shows a level of creativity that can only be manifested through poverty. A Tica that I spoke to about him thinks that from first glance everyone can see he is a Stoneman or Piedrero . But maybe it is because I am a Northern boy that I just cant see it. He commands respect, he is majestic. I would hang with this guy any day, we would talk about life and injustices in the black community. Check the video below to see 30 seconds I shot of him playing his guitar in Parque Vargas.
