X-Ray 4 - Parque Nacional Carara


Nuestro proyecto empezó con el parque nacional Carara a la cabeza, dando mantenimiento a uno de los senderos del parque porque en temporada de invierno se inunda y es imposible de pasar.

Desde nuestro primer día fue maravilloso observar todo tipo de animales – como, lapa roja, tucanes, serpientes – que nos iban a hacer compañía los siguientes 10 días. Somos un grupo muy enérgico y cuando llegamos al campamento empezamos a repararlo y mejorar varias cosas para así sentirlo como nuestro hogar porque después de la primera noche todos amanecimos bien mojados.

Vivir en la jungla, sin luz, sin baño, con lodo, hace de esta experiencia única. En nuestro día libre nos fuimos a nadar a un rio, fue una pequeña caminata pero maravillosa, mirando los gloriosos arboles y sonidos de las aves. Encontramos el rio y pasamos la tarde ahí, comiendo nadando y chilliando. Luego ya nos regresamos porque venía lluvia pero eso no nos detuvo y así fuimos al rio Tarcoles para ver los cocodrilos. Todo ese camino fue demasiado alegre, gritando, cantando y saltando para que los camiones nos tocaran el pito.

Y para que ir a un restaurante si tenemos chefs de primera clase, Amy con deliciosas empanadas, Georgia con magníficos postres y Richard y William dando el sabor latino. Sin duda, nadie se puede quejar de la comida.

Ahora todos estamos ansiosos por empezar en playa hermosa y sus bellas tortugas.

    Just returned from the pub, had a cheeky takeaway pizza and now ready for my lie-in tomorrow morning! The whole Raleigh body-clock has gone straight out the window since I got home – no more of these foolish 4am starts hahaa! Spent a few days sorting through the thousands of photos I took and I’ve come across some absolute crackers of you, so that’s something to look forward to when you finally get home! Simon x

    Hey Rich, hope you are having fun in Carara/Playa Hermosa. Missing you a lot and especially noisy! you better not of replaced me just yet jojo. I kept my promise that I would write on the blog for you! I sent you a message on Facebook and then realised you didn't have your phone so make sure you check when you get back! China is a lot fun, but not as good as Costa Rica, I've walked the great wall and the forbidden city already and watched Kung Fu (not as good as watching salsa though!) can't wait to see photos of your phase! lots of love Cat (nina) xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Broken rule no.1 once or twice, you know how it is. I've also started saving for Milan because I've been missing you. How much have you missed me Georgie? Out of 10? 11? Thought so. Enjoy the last week of Raleigh see you when your back. Love from your best Raleigh friend/hero Richy Rich xxxxx

  7. This is a message for Amy Marshall in the X-Ray 4 team.

    Hola. Have you seen the news?? Haha of course not, if the land moved it was because there was an earthquake in El Salvador, and if it is raining is because there is a hurricane in the Caribbean. I hope you are fine.

    Tomorrow is the opening of the Paralympic Games. It is not as exciting as the regular Olympics but I hope we will be in a good mood again. We have had post-games depression.

    I also have Amy-leaving depression. I miss you a lot but I know you are saving many baby turtles, so it is worth it.

    Muchos besos. Leon
