36-hour retreat in a 12-hour retreat game

In 149174 (12 hours for orders, retreats, and builds), the Spring 1907 Retreat phase is set to end in 36 hours. I can't see what might have triggered the change. Thanks for the help.

It is listed to not process deadlines on Halloween (10/31). Thus, 24 hours was added to the processing period.

Yes, but remember that 10/31 is not Halloween but rather Peruvian music day. So enjoy some Peruvian music!

We live in the middle of nowhere 2.5 Kms from main road, down unlit side road. The only trick or treat we’ll see would be a remarkable trick of finding our house & then finding the way home on foot. Anyway, there is a tiny local school (just 9 pupils covering 6 year groups) & my wife loves to hand out vast quantities of Halloween Candy each year to the little ones. It’s all bought & ready for distribution, BUT the school mistress is unwell (there is only one) & the school temporarily closed while she recovers. I like chocolate & sweets, but if I eat this lot I’ll be on a diet til Christmas! So much for Halloween, silly holiday as you say...

We live in rural Costa Rica. They still have “village” schools here like other places had many years past. Very often the teacher was a pupil in the school where they become teacher. The communities are very old & everyone knows everyone, going back generations. The teachers are trained to cope with all age groups & subjects up until what in USA is referred to as middle school. At that point, school buses etc take kids to larger schools in our case at the top of the hill 2.5 Kms away & 300 metres higher up! Steep hill that. We don’t have a bus, kids walk, rain or shine. We don’t have unfit kids either...

It is of course a little expensive running a school for 9 kids but the results are fantastic (& schoolteachers here don’t get rich at it, it’s often a vocation). Most kids are bilingual (English & Spanish) before entering middle school. The testing system is rigorous & our local school has not had a graduate (in the memory of the community) rejected by the middle school for not being sufficiently prepared. Never, in the entire career of our school mistress (30+ years).

I truly love this place. It’s like a time warp where issues like honour, honesty, respect, decency, caring for others all still count & kids know it, reinforced by every parent & every teacher. The young people are smart, well informed, polite & caring. At 16 they get part time jobs in call centres for major US corporations, handling upset customers in their second language, calmly & professionally. At 16! The average Brit 16 year old couldn’t face an upset customer over the phone in their own language, let alone the customer’s. It’s another world that reminds me that sanity still exists.

But, we usually don’t get street lights, we’re lucky to have tarmac on the hill outside our house. It is not a wealthy country, but the wealth they have is used wisely, especially when it comes to education. I’m proud to be British, but when I look at what this place has achieved over the last 60 years (my lifetime) it puts my country to shame. Amazing what intelligent governance can achieve if you’re lucky enough to get it.

Oh well, there endeth the marketing speech for Costa Rica. As you can tell I love it. Visit sometime & you might as well.
