Dios Mio is a frequent saying around here...MY GOD! But today, my driver used Ave Maria in the same tone. He is from the Barranquilla area of the country and this is the "oh, crap" saying for that area. We had about six inches of rain in 30 minutes and consider that there is literally no drainage system here to carry the water away. Flooding is the word! I have photos of enterprising young men who offer to carry people across the flooded roads. One pays based on one's weight...fat people pay more than skinny! When I figure out how to upload photos, you all can see them. I used to do this daily while on Fellowship, but appear to have lost all knowledge of how to do this. We shall see.
