Delta Yankee 2 Update – by Jessica Bridge-Dunk
We parted ways with Delta Yankee 6 in Estelí and boarded the bus over to our starting point. A nice surprise awaited for us as we had an unexpectedly short walk to out first overnight stop at a Raleigh built community centre. Apart from a lively dog and freezing temperature we all managed to get a good night’s sleep. And so begun the trek proper!
The 23km walk on day 3 was inevitably difficult yet we were met at the end by a pulperia where we all enjoyed Pepsi and sweet tortillas and cream. The next two days consisted of massively steep hills in exposed hot and dry areas – tough stuff! However, the view from Cerro La Fila and the incredible sunset made it worthwhile.
So a tough first week for Delta Yankee 2 but all still enjoying it despite the endless hills and blazing sun!
