Team Ecuador has just sent through the first update since arriving 10 days ago. They have just returned to Tena after finishing the project phase. Everyone is grubby but happy and well.
The team managed to build a jungle greenhouse for medicinal plants for the local communities, planted bamboo to reinforce the river banks and helped install a water system for a local village which was paid for by our school donation. The villagers were super grateful.
The team has been really well fed and made the most of a couple of free afternoons in the Amazon rainforest.
We look forward to hearing how the team get on in the other phases of the expedition.
