Also, cemetery rules stipulate that six years after a burial, relatives must pay 180 Quetzales, around US$24 dollars, to renew the burial plot for another four years. If there is no payment, cemetery workers exhume the body and put the skeleton in a mass grave. Over 2,000 bodies are exhumed annually after relatives fail to pay cemetery fees. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
