(Mindo Ecuador) – Many locals tell me that the extreme rains we’ve been receiving are due to the El Nino weather. When the road along Rio Cinto almost washed away, Barbara and I were part of an impromptu “Minga” where locals work together for the benefit of a community project. After about fifteen minutes, we were able to drive through the ‘rock bridge’ that crossed the washout.
Several hours later, the municipality’s dump trucks arrived and quickly patched the road. We are told that they will be back this week for more intense work on the roads in the area.
Barb can now add “Road Construction Work” to her quickly-expanding resume!
Until next report,
Lisa (and Barb!)
