Work Crew in Puerto Lopez

Saturday, April 27, I spent all day in Puerto Lopez, a river port village about an hour’s drive from Villavicencio. The town is famous for the fresh fish that are caught in the river and for the cargo barges that haul cattle up river the the markets of Bogotá and the center of the country and the construction materials and supplies they haul down the river on their trip back. But I did not go to the port for any of these reasons. I was there because the church in Villavo had organized a work crew to help the new church there as they try to get a building constructed in which to meet.
