Pancho Villa: Aqui and Alli

12 November 2010

 

Of course, this is NOT Chapo Guzmán (creative guess, though!), but a young José Doroteo Arango Arámbula — before his apotheosis as Pancho Villa.  The photo was taken from the History Channel’s fine “Pancho Villa: Aqui and Alli” — a documentary cum road-trip with the genial Paco Ignacio Taibo II though “Villa Country” — Durango, Chihuahua and across the border.  There is an 8-part youtube download —  labeled part 1 of 7… perhaps to confuse the gringos looking for Pancho, that — as far as I know — is a legal download, but then, again, we’re dealing with Pancho Villa, who wasn’t always a stickler for the legal niceties that stood in the way of educating the masses.
