Delta 5 arrived in Potosi on the 14th after a phantasamorgic bus ride courtesy of the Reggae Express.
This two day journey took us through the dry landscape of Nicaragua and we passed volancoes aplenty to the sound of Bob Marley and the Wailers.
We were quickly assigned our 'new parents', the villagers designated with the responsibility of looking after us in groups of twos and threes.
Though we were eager to start our project - the task of digging and building water facilities - the first week was spent collecting rubbish and plastic bottles.
In the afternoons we have organised English lessons and football matches, which have been especially popular with the local children and very rewarding for us.

We expect to start our new reforestation project in partnership with the Pueblo Nueva community in the coming days. These 'foreigners' will succeed!
