San Andreas bridge

Our last team in August worked daily in the Centroamericana church in San Andreas Semetebaj. Panajachel is located in a valley between two mountains, with one entrance coming in from Solola and the other from San Andreas. So each day, we traveled to San Andreas from Panajachel, having to cross over a bridge enroute. Each day, we watched the bridge crumble a little more and feared we would not continue to be able to pass. Well, the bridge hasn't fallen off the mountain yet! We passed that way last week and I took pictures of the continuing "crumble".

They say they are going to build a new bridge, but if they don't hurry, any small earth tremor will take care of the destruction process! We still pass that way, wondering each time if we will be able to return!
