We arrived back at the port this afternoon having spent our week in the wilds. Everyone seems sad to have left and has had a great time (despite a few ear aches, bad throats and the statutory up set tummies). The accomdation was basic but the staff were very supportive and helpful. We had 3 lots of 2 hour work sessions (as in hard physical work digging, hacking and planting) each day though a few very heavy showers shortened some days.
By the end of the week we had cleared quite a large area of Mora (otherwise known as blackberry bushes) and planted a lot of local trees instead (banana, guava and poisonous apple - something loved by the local tortoise population). The girls all did a great job of mixing with the other people at the station despite being a bit younger. I will try to get some photos up later when I get a decent internet connection.
Tomorrow we are off to Santa Cruz at 6.00am so it is an early start. Tonight, some of the other volunteers are joining us for a drink and some food.
