Well, what a week. After seven days of trekking we are beginning to get used to the 3.30am starts, dirt and refried beans for lunch (well some of us anyway). It's been a week of ups and downs, both emotional and physical. After being left at the side of the road we spent our first night in tents in a bat-infested house.
We have since walked some more and spent three nights in the jungle trying and failing to stay on our feet in knee depth mud. We've conquered some pretty epic hills, stayed with the indigenous Cabecar people and had our much anticipated and carefully prepared energy bombs eaten by their dog.
Out of the jungle we have been met by some pretty amazing views, encountered a rarely seen coral snake and learnt that lentils don't flush and mashed potato doesn't go in tea. But ultimately the beach cannot come soon enough.
