A day in the life of Delta 3

Woohoo Delta 3 radioed in this morning with a cheery blog update! What have they been up to?

Well Delta 3 have made amazing progress - after days of shovelling they are starting to set the foundations of the community centre they are building. After a long day of hard work in the immense heat, the group like to head to the river for a cool down dip, unless of course torrential Costa Rican rain prevents this!
Meanwhile they have been experiencing the local culture, eating tasty Costa Rican meals with their Cabecan host families. One host is a man who plays traditional Costa Rican music on guitar and his tunes have caught on with the group who are often found singing along on the project site.
They have also been playing football with the community but unfortunately Delta 3 lost the latest game 5-7. This obviously is because the locals are more accustomed to the humid climate, nothing to do with Delta 3's ball skills!
Tonight they are looking forward to having a talk on Cabecan culture and celebrating Project Manager Nati's birthday :-)

Sounds like they are having great fun! Looking forward for more updates...

  12. To Claire (Alpha 6)
    From: Diana

    Hola Claire! ¿Cómo estás? Ya veo que trabajando
    muy duro en la construcción. Me da mucho gusto como siempre la labor tan bonita que has emprendido.
    Y para qué te digo que descanses si fuiste a trabajar, jajajaja! Pero, eso sí, diviértete mucho, disfruta de tu trabajo, de la naturaleza, de Nicaragua.
    Te cuento que esta semana estoy de vacaciones o "vagaciones" como algunos les dicen jejeje. Para mi es un "work-liday" porque no he parado de trabajar en mi proyecto para acabarlo pero ahora con la novedad de que Beto, ya se rajó y no me quiere ayudar así que se me amontonó la chamba. En fin... Por ahí tengo un pretendiente del cual ya te contaré cuando vengas acá virtual, jejeje!
    Bueno, te dejo para que sigas trabajando y yo tambien. Este break ya se me acabó. Saludos
    de Diana.
