X-Ray 5´s Louis gives us an insight to life in La Amistad
X-Ray 5 are currently renovating the ´Gigantes del Bosque´ (Giants of the Forest) trail in La Amistad National Park, some of which has been renamed by the various work groups. ´Bill´ (a steep section where stairs are being constructed) has been given a makeover, roadwork´s have been undertaken on Sunset Boulevard and the whole trail has been Rambo´d (cleared of debris/fallen trees) from top to bottom.
Upon arrival at the campsite we took a day to install some creature comforts - we now have a makeshift stereo, hammocks, and our very own chillout area, dubbed ´el chante´.
The area has played host to some spectacular wildlife. So far we have spotted some gigantic butterflies and moths, hummingbirds and unconfirmed reports from George of monkeys as well; ´a brown flash and an ooh-ooh´ the only evidence to go on.
On the 7th we played host to the Corcovado trekkers, and the next evening we celebrated the 18th birthday of X-Ray 5 HCV, Alfredo with a pinata and marshmallows on a fire.
The group are bonding more and more and each day is full of laughs as we get stuck into the work.
