(Re)Appearance of the Alphas

It only seemed a mere handful of days since we waved farewell to our Alpha groups as the buses rumbled away through CATIE campus, but goodness doesn’t time fly, 19 days later they’re back, tired and weary in the most part, after long journeys across the isthmus.

It’s all hugs and smiles at Fieldbase, as old acquaintances catch up and exchange anecdotes from their phases; and after what is sure to an eagerly anticipated BBQ, tonight’s entertainment comes in the form of the group skits – which is sure to see a variety of genres used to illustrate life on phase. To the victor go the spoils; bragging rights and a tub of Dos Pinos’ finest ice cream.

Tomorrow we’ll be bringing you the run down of Phase Two’s allocations as come Saturday; our venturers will be whisked to all corners of Costa Rica and Nicaragua for their next instalment of Raleigh goodness.

Check back soon!
