Hello from the top of Pali Mountain!

Yesterday evening we finished our first day by celebrating Emi’s, Lilou’s and Louis’ birthdays. Thanks to them for the delicious cupcakes! After this we went for an astronomy walk during which we enjoyed the beautiful night sky and listened to stories about Cassiopea, Andromeda and Orion while finding their constellations.
This morning we did two courses : orienteering and energy dilemma. In the first one we learnt how to use a compass and read a map and then went on to find clues in the forest. In the second we reviewed the pros and cons of different energy sources and built our own wind turbines. We got to test them : some of them went really fast!
In the afternoon we relocated to Cloud City one of the rope parkours of Pali. We did the leap of faith and climbed on different trees.
Tonight is movie evening and then night hike!
