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. The journey to Boquete from Panama City back in August cost $180…

Seven Dresses – A color a day

After observing the dresses of the indigenous people in Boquete, Panama I’ve been flirting with the idea of just owning seven different color dresses. One dress per day. A different color a day. I think it would make getting dressed so much easier and save me a lot of money. If I decide to do…

Whale watching and picnic on Isla Gamez

Woke up at the crack of dawn to meet-up for the bus ride to David. Since it was so early traffic was light and we made it in thirty minutes. Usually it’s a forty-five minute drive from Boquete to David. Our little group of six from Boquete met up with the rest of the group…

A Picture a Day, September 2013 – Day 30

A Picture a Day, September 2013 – Day 29

A Picture a Day, September 2013 – Day 26

I walked past this school and the kids were banging on drums. I’m told they are practicing for Independence Day celebrations. November is a huge month of celebrations for Panama. Panama celebrates it’s Independence from Spain and Columbia in the month of November. Unfortunately I won’t be around for the celebrations. I fly out the first…

A Picture a Day, September 2013 – Day 25

This guy is on the Panama leg of his trip. He is driving from Argentina to Alaska in this Fiat. I’m guessing he’ll have to take a few ferries or boats in between. I wish him well. You can follow him on facebook.com/ArgentinaAlsaka. I had a friend take a picture of me with the car…
