Graffitti covers the walls of an abandoned hospital laundry room in Vallegrande, Bolivia Saturday, Nov. 13, 2004, where the body of the executred Ernesto "Che" Guevara was put on public display. Guevara was captured by the Bolivian army in 1967 in a nearby valley and executed in La Higuera days later. Guevara and fellow communist guerillas were attempting to launch a continent-wide revolution modeled on Guevara's success in Cuba in the late 1950s. 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.

EDS NOTE: This image would be best paired with a photography by Bolivian photographer Freddy Alborto of the che's body lying on the sink with Bolivian army officers behind. I believe this image is avaiable through the AP archive.
