110km down, how many to go X-ray 1?
We are over halfway through our trek which means our little legs have
covered over one hundred and ten kilometres over the last 12 days. Yes, our
legs and feet are sore but we begin each day with a warming up stretching
Some of the 110km covered...
We have passed through the many tiny villages of the Nicaraguan
mountains, we cooked dinner and played games with children from the school,
devoured eggs, plantain and coffee from a little restaurant and stopped off for
cake at multiple pulperias. Momatombo is slowly appearing closer and more
spectacular whenever we look into the horizon.
Cerro Negro - the final push
Our PMs organised a
surprise fancy dressparty, halfway, to celebrate our achievement so far. This has
given us more energy to enjoy and complete this trek, with a smile on our faces
and in good time!
