an electrician's dream (or nightmare?)
These pics were not taken at El Monte, but along the roadside a little distance from Ticuman. Everyone wanted Tim to see it! :)
I went to take pictures of the guys working on the buildings yesterday, but when we got down there my camera battery was dead. So we'll try again today. The house where we're staying is on the upper part of El Monte near the offices and the other family who lives on the mountain. It's a good hike to the cabins, the soccer field, and the construction areas. We either take the road, which is kind of an indirect route, or go how the crow flies through a shortcut path (I'm using the term path loosely here :) which involves tall growth, rocks, chiggers, and other native "friends". :) We've tried both, and I have to say I like the road a little better. :)
Hurricane Karl is supposed to pass over us today. We had heavy rain last night but didn't lose power, for which I am thankful! It's making it cloudy and cool, though, which is kind of nice. Janie says she hopes we lose power because she thinks that will be cozy. Umm.....I don't know about that!
Thanks for checking in with us. There is so much to share!
That's all for now. We're off to check on the workers!
