Almost all of the roads in our village are gravel, lending it a rural charm, and our cars a thin layer of dust. Graders come in twice a year to smooth out the ruts, but sometimes this is not enough. Steady rain here has made our road slick with clay, and this morning it had to be closed after our neighbour’s truck got bogged on the way out. We are hoping for quick repairs as soon as the rain eases. Meantime we can still be reached on foot!
