It was supposed to be an epic trip to three different countries. I intended to visit Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. I never left Kenya. In fact I didn’t even explore all of Kenya. However, it was a fantastic trip. I rented an apartment in Diani Beach and I slowed down. I spent an inordinate about…

3rd Month in Panama

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.
