Yes everyone, its time!! Alpha 5 have finished!! The 25th of February saw us finish our pipeline a whole phase early! Water will now always reach the lovely Rangers – Ronald, Fabio, Santa Maria, Alex, Andres and Mario at the top of Volcan Barva – 3000m of pipe crossing 5 valleys, done! In the evening we were treated to a huge dish of paella – needless to day it was delicious MUCHOS GRACIAS! Since the 20th we have had Caroline with us and the lovely Josie too – a full group and also a Scottish trio in addition to Georgina. Aye Aye!
Our day off on the 26th took us to the ‘Laguna Copey’ and despite the persistent rain, the majority of the group had a dip, albeit a brief one. Skit work has come on in leaps and bounds and we are confident the ice cream will be ours come changeover. We are however, so used to the cold and refried beans that returning to fieldbase is going to come as something of a shock to the system. We will miss you Ronald and Barva!
