Daniel Larrieu's Cenizas (Ashes) was like going on a trip south of the border to a small town where everything seems dusty and out of date, as if you've gone back in time about thirty years. A place where everything happens at its own speed, which is infuriatingly slow. Your only choice is to be patient and wait for it to all unfold in its own time. So you decide you will try to make the best of things but it just gets worse and worse. But you've paid a lot of money to go on this trip and invested your time and energy so you think, "Well, I've just got to press on, it has to improve." But it doesn't. It's the worst vacation you've ever taken and each moment is a painful realization that you've made a terrible mistake in coming. The travel brochure of doctored photos and colourful text was a scam. By the time you arrive home you are just grateful you survived. When you tell you friends about it they almost can't believe it, because when you try to describe it, it doesn't seem possible. It sounds ludicrous, even to your ears. That just about covers Daniel Larrieu's Cenizas.
