La Barra de Colotepec

I spent the past two weeks in a Centro de Salud that is only about 20 minutes from my house by colectivo.  Here are some pictures from my time in La Barra.

Riding in the colectivo on the way home from el Centro de Salud.

La doctora y yo.

Mojarra a la diabla.  Caught only hours before we ate it (never frozen) and purchased from the market.  ”Mojarra” is the type of fish, and it was prepared “a la diabla” meaning spicy.

El Centro de Salud.

This is a middle school I passed by on my walk to el Centro.

This is where all of the patient records are kept.

Supplies were kept here.

    1. Hmm…I’ve tried to think of a way to explain this in my posts, and I cannot think of a good way to describe it in a couple sentences. It looks like a taxi but operates like a bus system. I’ll do a post on colectivos with pictures later to try to explain it better!
