Weekly Photo Challenge … Night-time

September 30, 2014

Walking up hill at night

I was well prepared for this challenge ; for the last few weeks my husband and I have enjoyed having our meals in the garden. We have especially enjoyed having a brazier as the evenings got cooler.  So I have some nice images at hand.  

However, I have been overtaken by events and am able to celebrate with a super night time image.

My daughter and son-in-law had a motorbike accident 8 months ago; each suffering a broken leg. While my daughter has recovered almost fully, my son-in-law has taken a little longer. They live in a favela in Rio and notoriously they are built precariously on the side of a hill. Babilona is no different. So it has been very difficult for them both but particularly my son-in-law to make those first steps to recovery. Walking up and down a steep hill is not easy even for the able bodied let alone those with badly broken legs.

Nonetheless, without any alternative they have persevered. This week end I have evidence that my son-in-law made it down the hill to watch a football match and now he is walking up up.  I have walked this route many times and know he is a third of the way up and has long way to go yet … but this night he is getting there.
