Last night we had more heavy rain and this morning no vehicle would have been able to ford the river. Alex the builder got to work by crossing a footbridge about 500 metres downstream and walking across the olive groves. Fortunately, Rufi got hs lorry to us on Monday with another load of materials and so work has commenced on my first floor studio. The builders have erected a hoist to make it easier to raise the blocks and cement up to the first floor.
We got our Kangoo van back from the garage yesterday and it is parked the other side of the river which means a 1 km detour to the footbridge to get to it. Nevertheless, Digby went to Huétor Tájar this morning and took some spectacular photos of the Rio Genil. When we first crossed the bridge into Huétor Tájar last November the Genil was a mere stream. Never would we have imagined we would see it like this.
