Have I mentioned the bad roads?
Yes, this really is a road. Click on the picture, to get a closer look.
At the bottom of this picture there is a ford, currently dry because we are at the end of the dry season. Within a couple of weeks, as rainy season gets underway, this ford will be impassable.
Currently there is a walking bridge, made out of twisted strands of barbed wire and rotten wood, which is the only way to cross this spot once the river rises. You can imagine, as we cross these swinging bridges, how much we want to hang on to the wires along the sides. But that isn't advisable when the bridge is made from barbed wire. This makes the crossing of this type of bridge a little extra-memorable.
This is another location where we have been asked to help build an improved bridge.
