Rain in Waslala

After a month of rain, the northern road to Siuna has become impassible. The current problem is a hill just leaving Waslala that has become a mud bath. Vehicles can neither go up or down. Everyone – old, young, pregnant, sick, rich or poor – have to trudge and slip about a kilometer up and down the hill, carrying sacks or paying the young boys that gather around to carry them. The road south to the capital is still passable, but there are several parts that are in bad shape and if it continues to rain will also be impassible.
