"El ranchero en Trujillo, no usaba reló. La luz del día. Dando su luz el sol, ya usté andaba trabajando, ¿sabe? Si iba a trabajar por otro, eran cincuenta centavos el día. No ocho horas como ora. El día completo, de sol a sol. ¿Sabe cómo? De moo es que no se necesitabo reló. Ésa era la vida del ranchero."

"The rancher in Trujillo didn’t go by the clock but by the light of day. Once the sun came up, you were already working, you understand? If you went to work for someone else, it was fifty cents a day. Not eight hours a day like now. A complete day, from sunrise to sunset. You understand? Therefore, you didn’t need a clock. That’s what the ranchers life was like."
