Cayuco Men

Cayuco is the word of this summer in Spain. It's about people who approach from Senegal up to Canaries.The Cayuco is their "ship".
Está claro cual ha sido la palabra del verano...Inspirado por las fotos de un reportaje de Luis de Vega sobre las gentes que se acercan desde Senegal hasta Canarias.

Cayuco:
Embarcación india de una pieza, más pequeña que la canoa, con el fondo plano y sin quilla, que se gobierna y mueve con el canalete.
Cayuco: Indian craft of a piece, smaller than the canoe, with the flat bottom(fund) and without keel, which is governed and moves by the paddle.
