Here is the sign for the road between Montecristi and Jipijapa (pronounced hippy-happa) telling us that the 46.89 Km stretch costs $32.5 million US dollars. This road is just about complete; almost nothing left to do so it's an easy drive.
Between Pedernales and San Vicente (just across the bridge from Bahia), 111.08 Km costs $99.5 million. This one is underway now. Some bridges are out, some are being prepared to be taken out, and I don't think there were any that were complete yet in July, 2012.
Is this bridge really being held up with wood? I would not like to be one of the workers under it.
Until next time,
