The Cave of the Devil

La Cueva de Diablo (The Cave of the Devil) is a site in Mazatlan near the performing cliff divers that attracts tourists.  Locals claim it was a place that was used to store fish brought in by boats and that the smell from the site gave it the name.  It has long been out of use for this purpose, but gates with the nickname have been constructed to attract more tourists and to deter people from going inside.  I went there recently to take pics and took one through the gate just to have a record of what was inside.  After I got home, it became clear that there was something in the photograph that I couldn’t explain.  My shadow is in the front of the picture, but there are terrifying shadowy figures in the back of the cave.

Never there during the day

This man was skulking about the neighborhood late last night making discomforting moans and walking in a strange way dragging his feet as he lurched forward.  Even though it was dark, I knew he was someone I had never seen around during the day.  I crossed the street to avoid him, but cannot explain why he is only out at night.
