Pedro (LWR): "Sue, you must take a picture of the spring that will fill the reservoir."
Sue (thinking there was no way she could get to the spring, even at sea level): "Here, take my camera."
Pedro: "No, *you* should to take the picture."
And so, it came to be that I was hoisted four or five feet straight up, with about six inches of space for the hoisters to get footing before falling into the reservoir. I'm not sure how they did it, but I'm glad they did. There it was...a little oasis. What looked like an aquatic garden in someone's backyard will fill the reservoir that will feed the irrigation system that will grow the crops of quinoa that will feed 65 families in more ways than one.
I began to hyperventilate a bit wondering how I would get down again, but I shouldn't have worried. The young men who had accompanied me with patience down to the site, showed me the back way to return to the path as we made our way up the mountain path to our vehicles.
