Flowers sit next to a marker for Ernesto "Che" Guevara in Vallegrande, Bolivia Saturday, Nov. 13, 2004, where the body of the executred Ernesto "Che" Guevara was lay burried with six fellow guerillas for 30 years. A mausoleum now stands over the open mass grave. The remains were repatriated to Cuba after their discovery in 1997. Guevara was captured by the Bolivian army in 1967 in a nearby valley and executed in La Higuera days later.

The Bolivian government recently began promoting the area where he fought, was captured, killed and burried for 30 years as the "Ruta del Che," or Che's Route. (Kevin Moloney for the New York Times)
