Yeah, I'm not a fan of the concrete poles...it's a shame they couldn't do underground but I imagine it's the expense as our land isn't exactly rock free.
You might be surprised at how the locals (native born, if you will) feel about quite a few things that the "late arrivals" find distressing on Culebra...most notable quote to me (while telling me some wonderful stories and then onto the changes since she was a girl) would be "Sometimes we feel like we are in jail," by a woman in her 80's.
The concerns of the 'late arrivals' are because of a love of Culebra and the people of Culebra...and not wanting to see it lost in a sea of sameness that has happened all over the world to every beautiful place there is for the benefit of a few and the loss of many.
I promise, I don't think many latecomers arrived here wanting to be environmental or political activists...we really do just want to save what's left...
Save What's Left!
