The Last Ice Merchant (El Último Hielero)

Hard work, dedication and determination barely begin to scratch the surface when describing Baltazar Ushca from Ecuador (the main main in this video). I think it's a story we should show our kids to teach them how things were. Not because things could go back to a level of manual work as displayed in this video, but also because it illustrates the disciplines needed to do today's work with the same passion and self-drive. If nothing else, at minimum, it shows what we take for granted in our daily lives: Not just how ice arrives, but how we go about collecting things we now have readily available.
