Unbelievably the end of Expedition 11L is nigh, Wednesday will see the groups return to fieldbase for the final time as phase draws to an end. A few days of skits, awards, rafting and tearful goodbyes will follow but before then here’s a final update from the Zulus.
A quick reminder: Please do not send any more post from now on as it will not reach us before the venturers leave.
Zulu 1: After some 270km of trekking Zulu 1 are currently enjoying a well-earned rest at the beach at Palo Seco. Bodies are weary, feet are sore but spirits are high. Well done Zulu 1.
Zulu 2: Completed the Miratombo Trek in Nicaragua on Sunday and rested their weary bones at the stunning Lake Asososca. They have seen some amazing sights during their 250km trek and enjoyed some beautiful weather. Tuesday and Wednesday will see them continue to cover some impressive distances but this time by bus rather than foot.
Zulu 3: Continue to impress and amaze the rangers as they tackles set for them. They have dug over 220 metres of trench and laid the corresponding pipe. They were able to celebrate by turning on the first tap in the system. A truly awesome group!
Zulu 4: Have been continuing with their turtle patrols and work in the hatchery. They have also been doing great work around the rangers’ station. They also celebrated Alice’s birthday on Sunday with a fine energy bomb cake.
Zulu 5: Working across 4 project sites, the group have been making great progress improving wells, digging trenches, and laying pipes for water that will benefit many families in the community. They will begin their long journey back from Nicaragua on Tuesday,
So that’s almost ladies and gentlemen, all the groups are safe and well and enjoying their few days on phase. It will be an action-packed few days at fieldbase before they are homeward-bound.
