So without really realising it, another month has gone by. Lots of exciting things have happened so here's some of the best bits.
The first day back at base camp after the weekend in the Monteverde, we headed out on a 16 mile walk on the beach from our base to the nearest town - Tortuguero. On this survey we were searching for jag tracks and any predated turtles, and were very succesful with the former. Unfortunately turtle season hadn't really kicked ...
... of the day by mere seconds!) and head over to Isla de Ometepe (two volcanoes emerging from lake Nicaragua, that erupted and formed land mass around themselves).
We got there at around 6.30pm and it was pitch black so we jumped in the back of a Ute and it took us to some little town known as Altagracia with about 50 houses, corner store and a park (under exaggeration for effect) and caught a couple of nights in the sleepy town to get our bearings/buses ...

And the horse ride wasn't your casual stroll through the mountains. After introducing us to all of the horses our guide said 'estamos listos' and we all said that we were and then our guide yelled 'YAH' and our horses took off into a canter! It was very exciting to be sprinting up a mountain on a horse! At the end ...
Obviously the MOST important things we have to do before going out and visiting the projects is to make our fieldbase skit! So we have spent the whole afternoon dressed up in various "costumes" getting wet and muddy running around fieldbase. Dave has been a hero taking numerous photos to enable our skit to take shape – to pretty good affect….video evidence to be released shortly…!
