My third and final month in Panama went by quickly. I blinked, looked up and it was time to leave :-(. I continued hiking and going to Spanish class but I made so many wonderful friends in Boquete that my final month was spent mostly socializing.
The journey to Boquete from Panama City back in August cost $180 (airfare and taxi). For the return journey I chose to travel slowly from Boquete to Panama City. I took a bus from Boquete to David and then another bus (a coach) from David to Panama City. Because I chose to travel slowly the cost was much less. Cost of bus ride to David $1.75. Cost of bus ride to Panama City $30.50 (I bought two seats). One seat would have been $15.25. Total cost $32.25. I got to enjoy beautiful scenery along the way and got to see a little more of Panama during the seven hour bus ride.

I spent a few days in Panama City on my way back to the USA and had a wonderful time there also. Made some more amazing new friends. There are still so many good people in this world. I have been fortunate in this lifetime to come across some of them and for that I am truly grateful.
