David (in the yellow T-shirt) is a son of Lucía. At the age of nine, he is already a star of the local band in San Juan del Río called Instituto Intercultural Calmécac. The institute was established by el maestro Nathanael Lorenzo to give another option to young people from Oaxacan villages where they usually opt for migration at very young age or they start to grow marihuana. The orchestra is a professional one, David himself has already played the flute with some musicians famous all around Mexico. However, his father left to the US when David was a year old, he has never heard him play live.

“If he does not come back this year, I told him I would search for him there,” says Luz Maria whose husband has been in the US for nine years now. She was the first and the only Mexican woman who asked me the question: “Do you think he does not have any other woman there?” The number and variety of questions provoked by migration seem to be endless.

It was in 2009 when Lucia received a big envelope. When she opened it, she found photos of her grandchildren there. “I have never seen them in person. They already have the third kid, I have never seen that one, I only know two of my grandchildren from these pictures,” she says, holding firmly a few photos of her son’s family. Both of her sons migrated to the US more than 20 years ago. A 55-years old woman does not have a mobile phone to talk to them more often than once in a while when they call to her sister’s house.

San Juan del Rio is a village of unfinished houses. Locals say that at least half of the villagers are in the US, many of them as illegal migrants. Building a house is the first thing that migrants want to finance once they start sending the remittances to their families. However, many of those houses stay unfinished and empty. Wives sometimes wait for decades for their husbands to come back and move into the new house together.

Lucia (on the left) has not seen her sons for more than 20 years. They rarely talk to her on the phone. She would love to go visit them in the US where they are illegal migrants, however, she does not have enough money and she only speaks indigenous language. She is a widow who lives in the house built with the money from her sons. Julia, on the picture with Lucia, is a member of local orchestra Instituto Intercultural Calmecac in the village San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca. She stays with Lucia who has become like her other abuela - a grandmother.
