The long, long road to Ojochal

Everyone who has been to Nicaragua with us will also know Ojochal. This is a small community about 10 km outside of San Juan del Sur. Much of the year, the road there is okay. Not great, but at least passable. However, it seems that every October, the river rises and the road is gone. This cuts off not only Ojochal but also Miravalle. People living there who work in  San Juan del Sur have very few options at that time. They can not show up for work or they can try to cross the river. The same goes for medical emergencies, high school, etc. A bridge would be really great!! Ojochal road floods again
