Late one night in the Dominican Republic, we went for a walk down the neighborhood because we smelt a roasting pig. I stumbled upon these two guys who where roasting a pig for a Christmas fiesta the next day. Now they only spoke Spanish and I only spoke English so the information I gathered was from the little amount of Spanish I picked up living in Los Angeles.

    In the Philippines, we call this type of roasting pig as "Lechon". I like the way you shot this. Feels like I am actually watching it. Great angle and composition.

    Yes, in the Dominican Republic we also call it "Lechon" and I agree with Archie it feels like I was in the scene
