Laying the Cobblestones One by One

Yes, this picture was taken in April, 2014 and this is how it is still done. These hardworking hombres fit the stones together like a puzzle and another guy pours concrete between them out of a large yogurt or icecream container.

In fact it’s so hilly in this neighborhood burros are still used to pack in bags of dirt to my neighbours houses for landscaping purposes if you can believe this. By the time I whipped out my phone to capture this amazing event Eyore had already gone out of view and was starting down the very steep Homobono Calle.

I wonder how long brakes on cars last here? Or for that matter shocks?
