The Venturers and PMs have been having a relaxing time at Fieldbase, culminating yesterday evening in a splendid barbecue that they themselves prepared. They spent much of the afternoon happily peeling vegetables and preparing the food while they chatted and exchanged stories. Thoroughly therapeutic, it seemed to me.
This was followed by a couple of hours around a bamboo campfire, being serenaded by Adele, Raja and Chris on guitar.

I'll update the team and project locations on the map you can reach by clicking under PHASE MAPS on the right within the next day or so.
Adele and Dan are bowing out at this stage, as they’re both ‘7-weekers’ who joined 12J for the first two phases only. We wish them all the best for the future.
The new teams are spending today on a combination of packing, relaxing and jollity, before deploying tomorrow morning.
More anon …
