The Stop Sign
My village is developing and growing. Finally after about 7 months of roadwork, our road is finished. There is a thin layer of rocks that are stuck well into the ground. It looks pretty good if you ask me, and is a perfect ride for cars. At the end of our road there is a stop sign.
I told another PCV about the stop sign, and knowing where I live she asked why. I told her it might be for the 2 busy ferry times where an hour after the ferry arrives on our island, we have about 10 cars drive past within 5 minutes. Jokingly, I told her the traffic does get pretty bad.
Also new to the village are bus stops. When I arrived there were none. One family built one (They call it that family’s house, but everyone uses it for a bus stop.) about 2 months ago, and just last week the villagers got together to build two more. I am happy because there is one right by my house now. It will make waiting for the bus in the rain much nicer!
I wonder what is next in the village’s plans for improvement.
