And thank you for all the journeys for which you carried us safely!
Sadly, our 12-meter cargo boat rotted after three and a half years of use on the river. Wooden boats, even when painted, almost never last past three years. It had made over 100 trips up and down the river carrying our students, villagers, and supplies for our work in La Libertad. We also loaned it to other people for cargo work to help the people of Zaragosa and our neighbors across the river in Peru.
