The rain is here! The roads have been flooded and students have been slow to wander into the classrooms. When school is closed, Richard and I often head off on our own ‘field trip.’ Picture here are large waves near the house we rent in the Pueblo de La Playita. The waves have been drawing in surfers and have been unusually large (due to the rain and storms). One picture actually caught one of the yellow butterflies that have been swarming like flies for the last couple of weeks.
On Friday, September 14, we drove up into the Sierra de La Laguna Mountains to explore. We didn’t find the road up the mountain until it was time to go home. We also discovered the rains (since the day we arrived in Cabo) have washed out the narrow mountain road to the top. We drove to the first “water across the road spot” and turned around. We were able see the Santiago Zoo (very small and in the middle of nowhere) and some gorgeous Brahma Bulls standing and laying on the ‘Highway’ - as usual.
This rain – by the way – is a miracle. Stories have varied, but from what we gather, it has not rained substantially here for more than seven years. To have to deal with flooding is a blessing. It is also a sign of what God is doing. He promised His rain. The day we drove in, it began to rain and it has been coming down since!
