A reader’s glimpse of Monteverde recovery

October 19, 2017

Tico Times reader Margaret Burton wrote to us from the United States to share this photo taken by her brother-in-law Michael Giampetroni in Monteverde in the days following the passage of Tropical Storm Nate through the area. The photo depicts La Trocha a San Luis.

“I was very grateful for the coverage you provided, especially the article by Marshall Cobb,” Burton wrote. “My brother-in-law sent this picture to show how the locals had cleared a path for walking and quads.”

Thank you, Margaret and Michael, for sharing this image.

Read more from Tico Times columnist Marshall Cobb about the impact of the storm in Monteverde and how the community has recovered. And for more information about how to help the victims of Tropical Storm Nate, read our story here.

Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or any other image you care to share? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to kstanley@ticotimes.net. We’d love to see the sights with you.
