Laberinto Island, Peru, 8 February 2007.  Javier Aboleda is led by the hand of his daughter, Tutu, accross the camp to dinner. Most miners live here alone, their families back in town. Many work for as long as six to nine months before going home. The work schedule and the decline in profits keep the men working for longer and longer periods. Arboleda, who has been at the camp for seven months, decided to pay for his wife and daughter to visit because he says he missed them too much.
