At the school on a rope (8 photos)

Amazing story.
To get to school, 9-year-old Daisy Mora from Colombia needed every day
to overcome the turbulent river valley of Río Negro with the help of a cable tie.
For the inhabitants of a small village in the rugged 40 miles southeast of Bogota - this is the only way to communicate with the outside world.
Such a cable car in these places described German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt in the early 19th century.
Since then, almost nothing has changed, except that the rope is no longer hemp and steel.
Since the pulley is accelerated very strongly, using a kind of speed controller
 - Wooden Rogulina, clutched in his hand. The bag Daisy - a younger sister who is too small to overcome the canyon on their own.
