In October of 2010 a large storm washed out both the foot bridge and the “rampla” between Condega and the road to Yali. For several days the current was too swift for any busses or any other transport to pass, but when the current eventually slowed Nicaraguan ingenuity went to work. A number of young men inflated inner tubes and created makeshift rafts to transport people and products across the river. With ropes at either side of the river they would pull the rafts back and forth across the raging water. In this picture you can see bananas being transported in one area and a line of people waiting to cross on the other side.
