They accompanied us to the jungle part of the Mission, which journey is in itself close to historical.
This brought out the crowd, including lots of drivers from the lengthening line of heavy trucks.
On the way back to Huancayo, we stopped to check on the progress of the repairs. The flow of water, now decreased, had been split in to a number of smaller, less powerful channels, and some boulders and metal mats had been thrown in. Traffic was once again crossing. Carefully.
We continued on our way, grateful that the small bridge was OK.
We hope that your roads are less, uh, picturesque.
