We had these same flowers outside our place in Santiago
I am on my way back up and man does it feel good. Part of me feels like I´ve been traveling forever and to tell you the truth it is a little odd to be heading back, even though I am excited to be. I need to catch up on this blog, I am still in Panama which I left 2 weeks ago...
So, From Bocas Brava I went to Boquete which is a little mountain town... I had heard some people describe it as similar to a Colorado town, but could not for the life of me see what they meant, it being a sinlge season town... but once I was there I understood. It is everything that you love about mountain towns in Colorado in the spring. I stayed here 2 days, did some hiking, saw a great garden and hung out by the river and with my very cool hostel owner. It was a good time, but perhaps got me a little homesick.
From Boquete I headed to Bocas Del Torro and spent my last 9 days there. It was great. I stayed on the main island but you take water taxi´s and explore all the other

This was at Mi jardin es Su jardin which was a lovely garden in somes yard open to the public. these cows are for Michelle (Little little)
ones. Thinking back, I´m not sure what I did with my time, but I am sure it included swimming and sunning and hiking and playing and gererally enjoying the gentle ease of island life. I got some diving in there too, which ended up being better than I had expected after talking to a few people. I saw a nurse shark!! Super cool. And met some really cool people.
