Greetings from ZULU 2. So, 5 days in! It has already gone incredibly fast. Remarkably despite hill after hill after hill the team just gets stronger and closer. Everyone has gelled incredibly well and we understand the importance of supporting and helping each other in this sometimes difficult environment. The feet situation is pretty positive too. There has been superb use of zinc oxide tape and foot powder!
The weather seems to have a routine. Very hot and dry in the morning and then around lunchtime it rains, and if we’re really lucky we get thunder and lightning (renamed FUNder and BRIGHTning). We are very fortunate to be trekking through the jungle in La Amistad National Park for 2 days. Hopefully we shall see some awesome wildlife. We have already seen some monkeys in the trees and a few coral snakes.
Holly celebrated her birthday in a very sweaty style, and received an amazing Tinkerbell sticker, colouring book and marshmallows! We completed our first river crossing like professionals, and it was a proud and satisfying moment when no one fell in or lost their boots!
Smiles all round!
