Two men transporting a body by using a guando.
Guando is a word that comes from the Quechua language. It means stretcher.
The guando is made of wood or bamboo. The deceased person is covered with a white sheet and then bound with natural fibers.
This method of transporting bodies is very rare today. It was used in poor or unreacheable places where a wooden coffin would be too expensive of too difficult to carry.
The guando has been the subject of many legends, including horrific tales of people who, apparently, have seen one been carried by ghosts at certain nights of the year.
