That was discussed before, because the sailor with the bad teeth was picked on a bit. It was for shore patrol to pick up mostly drunks in and was easy to wash out the puke.

Do not worry Mariano, there may be some people that did not see the pictures before.

Don't apologize Luis, and don't quit posting pic's. I think this has turned into very popular forum because of what you guys find and put up.

Was written earlier that the cage was to keep the locals from grabbing souvenirs from the jeeps when driven slow.
