Close to home–In honor of Lucia
I was browsing photo I found on line at RioGringa blog and found this photo. The woman in the blue shirt is Lucia our maid. I have spoken of her several times on the blog. She has worked for Camillo over 20 years. Taking pride in keeping us clean AND organized.
While still in Friburgo I was unable to walk to her home (when we heard that it was damaged) because of the slide on the road between her home and ours, this photo says all that needs to be said. It is hard to tell but her house was almost attached to her daughter’s and both are gone. Her home was across the road from a high peak, but sat more on the valley floor or at least relatively flat area. We were told that she only lost part of the house when the house up on the hill came down on hers, but this looks like a complete loss to me. I hope she will honor us by letting us help her get her home back together.
