We made it and sad good-byes

Done! The data has been collected and we are now working on shutting down the base for a few weeks over Christmas until we will be back for a fresh start on January 7 with a new group of volunteers.

There will be plenty of reports from this last phase in jalova on this site in a few days, as soon as the last 4 staff have made their way back to San Jose with the kit from Jalova.

During the last 2 weeks, the rainy season on the Caribbean had shown its strength, a very slow moving low pressure system over the Atlantic brought as much as 190mm in 24 hours. Even Jalova - the base that does not flood - was tested to the max (see below).
