Earthquake anniversary

Temblor damage in Barra

October 9th is the anniversary of the 1995 big earthquake. I don't know what that building was but it's gone. The big Hotel Tropical next door was damaged also. Doesn't compare to Casa Grande Hotel (Hotel Melaque) damage but happened the same day.

Barra gets a new road

Didn't ever think I'd see a real paving job on the road to Barra but here it is. Usually it's just filling potholes

Surf in Barra yesterday

We got wet on this one

Towards Melaque

Lorena's foto in front of the church

We wer over in Barra using the ATM machine and decided to check out the beach. Sea level was very high and waves were some of the largest I've seen. The first foto got us wet and Nahima (5 years old) went running.  Lorena took the last foto in front the church.

Sisters need school supplies

My neighbors
Nahima and Yare school fund

I'm going to help but need help helping. Both need backpacks (mochilas) and the older needs lots of notebooks. Nahima just graduated from Kinder so needs a first grade uniform and shoes. Yare needs another uniform after two years. Both Yare and Nahima are doing well in school

Day in Barra

The girls wanted to go over to Barra, see the new Malecon and swim in the lagoon. I was still feeling dizzy (mareado) so I just sat on the beach. Forgot to charge my camera so only got these two fotos. The next day Lorena showed me some bites she got in the water. Never heard of that before and they were bites, not stings. The ocean side was way too rough so we stayed away.
