Taking matters into their own hands.
After class yesterday I spent the afternoon with my new friend Moriah and she showed me around Quepos. She lives in a Tico community that apparently floods badly during heavy rains. Her neighbor took matters into her own hands and is paying to dig a trench and install a drainage pipe. Unfortunately, they dug through the side of a hill that is a graveyard! It appears the hill could easily erode in the next rain, and with the crosses marking the grave sites teetering on the edge . . . it’s hard to know what will come down with the soil! Yikes.
I just realized I never got a picture of Moriah – I’ll fix that tonight.
I’m getting ready to go on a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park this morning and will spend the day exploring the trails and beaches in the park. Tonight I will attend Moriah’s play – sort of a Spanish Vagina Monologues!!
More to come. . .
