guts, grit and determination

That is what Sisu stands for, says Wikipedia.
Well I was truly impressed with this well coordinated cornering in Caņas today. They are all aiming for a place behind our house, part of t his line here

more about the truck here Smile

thanks to all who visited the weevils Smile

EDIT
The infrastructura is the infamous Interamericana, RN nš1 they are working on some parts. But the biggest part of the N1 will stay a 2 lane, slow and dangerous road. I admire the truck drivers who run from Guatemala to Panama all the time. And this driver who had to manoeuvre this load through the roadworks.

Wow, that is an amazing truck with one hell of a load. I have never seen so many wheels on a trailer! What are the "infraestructuras" that they are constructing?

Regardless, a fascinating and well captured set.

A great set capturing the enormity of this multi-wheeled hauler.

These riggers are amazing men, Carol ! This is part of a prefabricated wind generator they are erecting. They are supposed to be eco friendly,but sow devastation on the bats, bees and birds, which are killed for many miles around, due to the decompression vortices, and infrasound the giant blades make.

Dear Martin, I can assure you that we have hundreds of windmills behind the house. We rather live close to them then close to the nuclear power stations in France.
Here we are in a country that lives of 95% renewable energy and gives a lot of free electricity to their poor Nicaraguan neighbours , only 80kms from hereSmile.

The birds are fine, see my portfolio, we have more than in France and soo many indeed that we hardly have any mandarins,papayas and sweet lemons left. Bats don't live in the windy highlands, they live in the lowlands. Zopilotes do far more damage to birds than anything else here.

Bees are coming more and more since we have banned all insecticides except the stuff to kill leaf cutters. I have made clear that all insects are welcome those that are a pest get treated with neem seed solution.

Last but not least, ICE (Instituto Costaricense de Electricidad) is the biggest employer here in the Guanacaste highlands.
