The first day we were supposed to hike Mt. Boutmezguida to see the nets collect the fog, but it was raining. Instead, we were put into a jeep and small groups were driven up to the mountain to the nets. Gina, Kate, and Eliana were enjoying their time hiking when a hailstorm started. Luckily, the jeep came to save them. The upside of the rain was we were the first group to witness the fog harvesting in action! We all gathered around the nets and asked questions about the project before hiking down the mountain to have lunch. During lunch, Vanesia lead the group in asking questions to the beneficiaries of the fog project to see how having direct water supply has affected their lives. One example was how young girls could stay in school and continue their education because they no longer were needed at home to travel to gather water from the wells.
