... from our host countries. They had been through a tough assessment process and as they had all met before, there was a definite comraderie. To welcome them to the fold, we held a Spanish evening; where speaking English was banned and our Spanish was put to the test. The evening was fun and also an insight into how these guys would feel, as the main expedition language would be English. An empañada contest was held, with our hosts as our teachers and whilst my team ...
