Delta 3, it’s been emotional. But fear not, more adventures coming up imminently in phase two so hold on to your hats. We'll be seeing Delta 3 as they arrive back to FB tomorrow with the rest of the groups. Next up we have some more news from Alpha 5 over in La Cangreja National Park where they have been spending their days deep in the jungle, working on the trails.
Alpha 5 have survived their first week of living in the jungle. It’s been very wet, muddy and itchy. The camp now has a “shower” (bucket and cover area) and an organized kitchen. We have dug up 2km of piping which is going to be reused. Unfortunately the project to start the wheelchair trail has been abandoned due to lack of permission. Instead we are repairing and improving the existing trails in La Cangreja. So we head off into the jungle in the mornings with our shovels and rakes. On our nature walk on our day off we saw a Fer de Lance (enormous snake!). We also ate masses of fried plantain, which made a nice change to the tradition Raleigh rations of Pork & Beans!
