We wish them all the best of luck and success in Carara, Playa Hermosa, Duchari and Tamiju - an amaze phase awaits them I'm sure. We can't wait to receive updates from the Project Comms Officers and Project Photographers - of which there are 1 of each per group - we will be posting those updates on the blog so keep a look out.
Meanwhile, Alpha Groups have showered and now have a teeny bit of time to reflect on our first night of bonding under the stars before the final preparations begin for the off tomorrow. Kit needs to be picked up and organised, final handwashing done for 3 weeks of wear, and some final training on sustainable development will add context to the projects we're about to join and make it all real and tangible. To say everyone's excited is a massive understatement!
Here are some pics of 'jungle camp' - and from what we see, like the Deltas I reckon these guys might just get on! Phase 1 is set to be fantastic and it's brilliant to see Venturers and VMs from all over the world working together - Costa Rica, Nicaragua, GB, Eire, Bermuda, Holland, Hong Kong, Italy, Spain, France, Argentinia (Pedro), Cyprus, US, Canada and Germany - borders and oceans don't matter when you've got a tent to pack, 100 bags of cement to shift or 20km to trek!
Once we've had our final sessions at 7pm it's party time - but not sure how long everyone will stay up - it's a 3.30am start again tomorrow! Phew...
