Traffic here looks crazy to most of us until we get used to it, but generally it works surprisingly well. We have seen very few accidents and those only fender benders.
But, last night, there was a serious accident on the PanAmerican Highway near us. Three young people were killed and a forth injured. It was the first thing my neighbors talked about today, and it is on the front page of the national newspaper’s website. It’s such a tragedy. They are also children of well known people in the country.
Today we went to Volcan and Cerro Punta. On the way home we passed the home of one of the families, a home in our neighborhood that we have passed many times on our bicycles. Cars lined the street and people spilled out from the front porch. I can barely imagine the grief of these families.
It was a good day for us and posts will be coming later. Now though I wanted to take a moment for this sad news, and remind us all that we never know what tomorrow may bring. Send a good thought and some healing energy to these grieving people.
