Worked some more with Charlotte to create an Environmental Leadership program for local high school students. It's coming along nicely.
Thought I should take some photos of base, since I spend so much time here.
This is the kitchen. Or rather the gas stove that we cook all our meals on. The rest of the kitchen is out of view. We eat really well, and have a nice varied diet. We get pretty creative with the stove and toaster oven.
This is part of the garden with the library and showers in the background. The library is well stocked with past research here, costa rican plant and animal field guides, and romance novels left by past volunteers.
The shower may not be white-tiled with italian faucets, but boy does it have a view. This is prime location on base to see spider monkeys.

Finally, the glamourous jungle-loo. No explanation necessary.
