We have been tasked with trekking from one side of Costa Rica to the other. As you can imagine, this is a challenging mission!
At the start of trek, the sheer heat hit us immediately and has turned out to be one of our biggest challenges so far. Although we are lucky, as 4 days in we haven’t yet had rain, it can be hard to appreciate as we are soaked with sweat!
Yesterday, whilst walking along a disused train track, we stopped to ask locals for directions in broken Spanish. We really weren’t expecting to receive a response in perfect Jamaican-English! Stumbling upon a community of Jamaican settlers in Costa Rica was an astonishing surprise that helped us to get back on track.
Spirits in X-Ray 1 are high and everybody is looking forward to the next couple of days when we will trek through the jungle!
Peace out from X-Ray 1 having fun in the boiling sun!
