Since then, dozens of people from both sides of the border have come to the area to meet "Kikito", the installation of more than 8 meters in height; a picture of a one-year-old boy who lives a few blocks away.

The warmth of the day did not stop people from posing and spend a few minutes watching the work. Visitors came from everywhere, the cars featured both Mexican and American plates.

The access on the American side was more difficult, whereas in the Mexican side, it was relatively an easy road.
