the bridge over the rio tuito

It’s just a bridge but it really is a miracle! After fifteen years of talk and lots of discussion, we finally have a bridge over the crucial stretch of the river, where the kids cross to the primary school. You have to understand that the Rio Tuito can get to be chest level for a child to cross. Parents would walk the 35 minutes up river to carry their kid across it and then return afterschool, to do the same. Now due the help of our President of the Cabo Corrientes, Leon, and the help of the entire community and a few other volunteers from Maryland, Yelapa has a sweet little bridge.
