The Show of the Lizard Woman

Walking on any Mexican fair and you’ll find freak shows for sure…On the left we have the announcement: The last of its kind, Esmeralda the Lizard Woman.


Her story is announced loudly through old speakers attached to a camper car: Esmeralda disobeyed her parents and they cursed her. Then her body became a lizard and has been exposed in fairs and carnivals to show her misfortune. Ten  pesos the entrance.

We entered and found Esmeralda,  without so much glamor and with her body a little rigid. There were ten pesos very well invested. The laughter was worth it. We asked Esmeralda to move her tail. But she just moved her eyes.
