The Rio Atirro cut a new path and the road is gone. The bridge still stands, but no chance of getting to it.
The road to the right, is the road to Esperanza and our farm. The road to the left, took you to the bridge across the river. There was no river here. How do you fix this? The re-cut river is now only about 20 feet from our road. The Alcalde (Mayor) needs to do something. They never fix things to last here. Last year they put a lot of money into stabilizing the bridge on this road. All of that money is down the river now. Gone, washed away by the first heavy rain of the season. Natural erosion.
