After returning from their brief sightseeing/shopping trip to Mysore on Monday, the Venturers returned for an evening of dinner, catching up with their friends from the other teams and entertainment.
They also greeted our two new arrivals - Amber Elisa from Holland and Jennifer from the UK, who have just joined us for Phase 2 and 3. Welcome, both!
The entertainment took the form of skits by each team summing up their project in Phase 1. All four teams had clearly put much effort into preparation (several minutes or even more in some cases!) and the resulting skits were suitably hilarious.
|Tango Six - Leeches on trek!|
|Echo 3 - basha life has all been such fun!|
|Charlie One - Village life set to music|
The winner was .... Tango Five.
|Tango Five - portraying rowing on trek, ...|
|... Showing what living in a cramped shelter is like,...|
|...And finishing with gusto|
|'Yummy' and yummies for the winners|
The PMs - also rearranged from Phase 1 - used a variety a ways of ‘attracting’ their new team members – from including their names in poems to making everyone close their eyes and relax while the ‘chosen ones’ were gently tapped on the back!

The afternoon was spent relaxing, washing clothes and packing for the next nineteen days.
|Packing for nineteen days - the kitchen sink must be in there somewhere!|
This morning the teams all set off for their new project sites, and all have phoned in to confirm their safe arrival.
