A quick report from the Nicaraguan capital Managua, where Bravo 4 (consisting of Julian, Reggie and Alex) have arrived after travelling up from Fieldbase on Sunday.
Yesterday afternoon we met up briefly with a high-spirited X-Ray 2 who are tackling the Guanacaste Trek with gusto! They had finished their second day´s walking by lunchtime and were enjoying a well-earned rest in the sunshine (a far cry from Alpha 2´s rain-sodden start to the same trek!). as well as delivering food and blog messages, Bravo 4 also returned Delun to her rightful place with X-Ray 2. Along with the beautiful weather, the team have been treated to some stunning views and beautiful sunsets that have rewarded their tough climbs on day 2.
Next stop for Bravo 4 is a visit to X-Ray 6 in Miraflor and then onto see X-Ray 5 in Achuapa, blog messages will be delivered and photos taken. We´ll be back with a report on those visits asap.
Bravo 4 are currently soaking up the atmosphere here in Managua where people are celebrating on the streets in their thousands after Daniel Ortega of the Sandinista Party won the national elections with a record margin of 63%. The atmosphere is certainly lively but very happy and friendly.
Blog from the various X-Ray groups are due in over the next few days so keep an eye for those.
Pura vida and De acachimba!
