News from Nicaragua - Alpha 2
Miratombo Trek, day 6
This trip is not for the faint-hearted but as a team we're strong! Being part of a team helps you overcome any difficulties. You can lean on your teammates and everybody helps each other along. The awesome feeling of the team massages, team hugs, getting tortillas from the (always friendly) locals, and just the vibe that's in the air takes every bit of discomfort away and allows you to feel accomplished and proud of everything you've achieved during the day.

It's funny how easily a person can get used to feeling dirty and not having the comforts that we have at home. It all makes the experience even more special. Also being the day leader teaches you to handle a lot of responsibility and helps you grow as a person. That being said, it's not all fun of course, we work hard, we're all dirty, tired, hungry and have sore feet but still we push forward, smile and think happy thoughts and with every mountain we climb, we look around and see the view and that makes it all worth it.
