we met at Cusco airport where we were picked up by a crees employee for transfer to our hotel for the night, we both realised that we smoked and have been smoking buddies ever since, terrible habit I know but I have had my most interesting conversations with people whilst having a fag!
We left the MLC on Thursday morning on a damp and dreary day which reflected my mood
it has been a tough month but I have met some great people and adopted a daughter!
There have been so many people but a mention to . . .
Jia so full of life and joy “Oh my goodness”
Dustin the laid back Californian with a vast knowledge of animals
Hannah banana who`s face lit up when I said I had Yorkshire tea bags, you can take the lass out of Yorkshire, but you can`t take Yorkshire out of the lass!
Lillie with the sexy French accent
Claire bear She’ll be right mate!
Hollie you always knew when Hollie was about, she wasn`t difficult to hear!
Maren who had to endure my German jokes
Nicola who had to endure my Scottish jokes
Sharron who I worked with on the bio gardens
Rupert who saw an ocelot and wouldn`t let us forget it
Dave my room-mate with a vast knowledge of science and at least I wasn`t the only old git on the project!
Little Ellie who can make a hiccup sound like a mouse!
Andy for his scientific knowledge and passion for the rain forest
Nica I went to Peru a single man and adopted a daughter!
Bobbie with his giraffe legs
The people of Peru so friendly and welcoming
There were so many people I can`t name them all and apologies to anyone who`s name I have spelt incorrectly.
I write this from my hotel in Cusco and I leave to fly home tomorrow (Saturday) I have a camera full of pictures, a head full of images and memories and a sad heart to be leaving, it was challenging, tough, fun and an education.
