Maya Indian paints mausoleum of his dead grandparents in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula 
Maya Indian Andres Chi brushes the mausoleum of his dead grandparents with a fresh coat of paint in a cemetery in the village of Pomuch in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, some 838 miles (1349 km) from Mexico City, October 31, 2006. In a tradition dating back centuries, families in Pomuch exhume their dead after three years in the grave and transfer their dried bones and skulls, often with hair attached, to wooden crates on permanent display in open funeral niches.
