Nicaragua - People and places: Barge bridge/Balsa vehicular

Barge bridge/Balsa vehicular



































The barge bridge to Malacatoya, Granada has a new cable!!! You might remember the old one that was constantly breaking. Now, the engine is also running and pulling everything across. Rumors in the air say that a bridge is in the works....when? Only heaven knows...but as they say in Nicaragua: Hope doesn't fill your stomach but it can fool it....

La balsa camino a Malacatoya, Granada tiene un cable nuevo!!! Quizá te acordás del viejo que siempre se reventaba. Ahora, hasta el motor está corriendo y jalando todo através del río. Hay rumores que se va a construir un puente....¿Cuando? Quien sabe...pero como dicen en Nicaragua: "La esperanza no llena pero mantiene...."
