And Alpha 4 are off to the jungle

Alpha 4 have finished their work up on Volcan Turrialba and today headed to the warmer climes of the jungle for part 2 of the project. Keith and Ryan have provided us with a few photos documenting the group's time up the Big T!

    Hi again! Today I just want to share these jokes in spanish.
    Ayer me pasaron unos chistes sobre argentinos, buenísimos, no se como piensan los britanicos acerca de ellos pero en este continente los tachamos de arrogantes, tu sabes, pedantes, se creen la gran cosa. Y cómo será la cosa que hasta ellos mismos se burlan de eso. jajaja
    Por eso te dejo estos chistes, que me han encantado, espero que te gusten a ti tambien y los compartas con quien gustes:

    1- Los argentinos son como Dioses, están por todas partes pero nadie los ve!!!
    2- ¿Cómo se suicida un argentino? R= Se sube a la cima de su EGO y de ahí se tiran. LOL!
    3- ¿Cuál es el juguete favorito de los argentinos? es el yoyo (yo-yo, yo-yo, etc)
    4- ¿Sabes cual es el mejor negocio de tu vida?
    R= comprar argentinos y venderlos en el precio que ellos dicen que valen. jajajaja!

    Espero que te hayan gustado. Cuidate mucho!

    Mimbo!!!

    How's things? Trust you ended up in CR and not India ;) Hope you are having a great time out there...missing you, all your stuff is still piled up in the corner of my living room!! Just been to see Harry Potter 7, I reckon trekking would be far easier with a flying broom stick, when the going gets tough bring out your inner Ron Weasley!!

    Yours ever

The Turrialba tribute cake looked like a creative masterpiece and we hope you are partying equally as hard as you're working. Loving all the photos, keep them coming. Lots of love Mum.

  16. Dear Raleigh Costa Rica and Nicaragua,

    What has happened to Delta 2??!! So far the blog has covered Alphas 1 (twice), 2 (twice), 3 (twice), 4 (twice), 5, 6, and 7 AND Deltas 1, 3 (twice) and 4 (twice). Even some kind of rogue Charlie unit has muscled way into the action!! I fear that as time goes by their memory will slowly fade and they will, in time, become just Raleigh legend, destined to see out their days building endless paths surviving on the meat of the turtles that they were sent to conserve! In all seriousness, would be great to know they're all ok. I appreciate you are probably getting around to them. Best wishes to all....

    This is my 4th attempt- so i hope this gets posted. Anyway - there are no updates from your group - you must be very busy.Hope you are enjoying it all. Japan won the women's world cup final. It was very exciting and dramatic- extra time and then finally a penalty shoot out. The US did play very well- had lots of chances at scoring during the match but performed badly on the penalties. The Japanese just kept going- they were determined,skillful and super fit.Anyway things are tootling along here.
    Hope to hear from you soon. Love Mumxxx

  24. Dear Siew-Ling,

    Not yet heard a dicky about how D2 are getting on from Raleigh. Are you allergic to the people who write the blog, or just so remote they can't be arsed to travel over to you?! I hope it's still going well and you enjoy your last few days at the concentration camp. Everything ok here except the July washout situation but I'm guessing you can probably empathise! Will not bother to bore you with the minutiae of my life, suffice to say I'm good but missing you immensely and counting the days till you're home.

    I love you.

    We are so elated for all the news from the Alphas and Charlie......but please please please can you give us a more robust update on the Deltas and in particular Delta 4......we miss our dear ones working hard on their projects.

    Hey kiddo, how is it going? We miss you sooooo much. I wish we had more updates about you guys, but I'm sure you are having a great time. I keep trying to imagine the conditions and the progress you must be making. I'm especially wondering how the beard is coming along?!
    Everyone sends their love and we are all so proud of you, and a few of us, not mentioning names, are quite jealous!

    Dear Keith,

    How is your process to be a better man? Do you feel your changes? I believe your determination and perseverance can help you do more and do better! No matter how hard and difficult your project is, it still ends one day. So try your best and work your hardest. Never let yourself regret!

    Can't wait to hear more from you.

    Don't know why my last message cannot be posted on wall. Anyway, it's just a little problem.

    Love & Care,

    Sup dude?!

    I hope you got my other message! If not, there was another message... :P.

    You are looking so damn fine in the pictures on the blog from your project. It's good to see you're still in one piece and bits of you haven't dropped off or anything!

    Not much going on in England, the weather is droll and Cameron is still Prime Minister. My parents have come back from Hawaii and are ridiculously smug with themselves! I spent some time with Carolyn who is on the mend and went to Belgium and back. Also watched Green Lantern (Wouldn't bother) and...... HARRY POTTER! Although I was in Belgium when everyone was dressing up so I missed out too :P. I'm really pooping myself about Borneo, but i'm pretty much packed and setting off in a week. I'll message you again before I go.

    I hope you're in fine health and enjoying every minute of it. I miss my wingman of mayhem!!!

    Loads of cuddles and a POP AND FRESH!!!

  34. Dear Carmen,

    volcano and jungle sound wonderful! Similarly the sloth sounds interesting, not so sure about the snakes! It sounds like you are enjoying yourself. What else have you got to report? I'm looking forward to seeing you in October (it has been penciled in) so you can tell me all about it. I'm on holiday - we bought a VW transporter van (T5 new one) so going on a roadtrip round wales and south coast ending up on the Isle of White. I got my red sash in Wing Chun - whoop whoop!! Keep me up to date what is going on with you. How is the Spanish coming on? Take care, have fun - enjoy!! lots of love Kim xx

    Hello!

    sorry It's been a while since you've been out there and I haven't done this! but suddenly Cornwall got busy! hehe! you look like you're having the most amazing time darling!! I am very jealous! Though being back in Cornwall is fun, working in retail again isn't :(

    so please tell me about everything you've been up to, off to the Jungle ay?!! now that sounds exciting! man I miss you a lot Carmen, just going to put it out there, please can we actually be London friends when you return?! And there is a good chance they will make you a co-ordinator, because guess what....I am officially now a Disney Co-ordinator! woooo! I did my first event with Rachel and Jo at a golf club! (very posh) but you would have loved it! we got to ride golf buggies! However saying that I think what you're doing right now is probably far more thrilling! hehe!

    There is actually so many things that I need to talk to you about, who knew I could ramble on so much over one cup of tea a day!! hehe!

    I'm so glad you are out there, with that massive beautiful smile of yours, having an amazing time. miss you :) xxxxx

    lots of love Cassie x

    Hi Carmen!
    How goes life in the jungle? Poppy is very excited that Aunty Carmen lives in a jungle "with the elephants and the monkeys and meerkats(!)" and she did draw a picture for you but probs wouldn't get there if I sent it so shall save it for you (you do look a bit like a yellow crab in it tho) Sorry its been such a long time! We literally just got internet today!Finally!Have no signal whatsoever on our mobiles either as we now live in the middle of nowhere! New house is great tho! Lots more space! Got some chickens and a very annoying cockeral which im trying to get rid of as he has been waking us up at about 5am-he never shuts up he's like a cartoon one! You coming to visit in september???? Poppy wants to say to you.... "hello aunty carmen, I love you" She did want to say happy birthday too so had to explain it isn't your birthday every time we speak to you! Anyway, am off to put Moken to bed for a nap now! Looks like you are having a good time! Photos look good- looking foward to seeing some more!
    Lots of Love
    Kate (and Larry, Poppy and Moken)

    Hi little C,
    I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of your exciting adventure (I’m totally jel). I am now on the count down until you arrive home and the champagne is on ice! I cannot wait to hear all about it (maybe more than 1 bottle required)
    All well here, I have just come back from a break in Paris for Cheryl’s 30th and now looking forward to our first wedding Anniversary (can you believe it a whole year has flown by MOH)
    Message me as soon as your home.
    I love you and will see you soon
