Meanwhile here's a short blog from Alpha Romeo 5, Achuapa to give you an idea of what they've been up to. No doubt many of them will tell you themselves when they get in touch when they're here!
Words: Jo Blackwood and Gemma Hall
After a fun-filled daytrip to the baseball we started work on Monday feeling fresh and determined to finish the job! The week had been filled with digging the last two trenches, gluing all the tubes together and installing the taps at our families houses. The final taps are now in place and we are ecstatic to say that there are no leaks, no problems, and the system is complete with every tap working beautifully. All we have left to do is fill our lovingly dug trenches leaving no trace but our handprints in cement!
Our last two days will be spent enjoying San Marqueña with a visit to the beautiful Rio Grande and returning in the afternoon for a fiesta with the locals kindly organized by the co-operative. There will be speeches, dancing and no doubt tears (from the boys).
Monday is our final day in which we will be spending time with our families. Hopefully we can beat the locals at baseball again (2-0 to Raleigh!). Tuesday morning brings the final goodbye and the beginning of our two day journey back to fieldbase. Bring on the Disco Bus!
For now, all’s that’s left to say is…job done!
Love from Alpha Romeo Fiver.
PS Watch out fieldbase, Alphalfa and her five Romeos are coming to town…!
PPS Shout out to all our loved ones, we miss you all very much!!!
