Its been a while since I’ve posted, but this yogi has been on the go 24 hours a day!
I’ve been blessed with a wonderful opportunity and will be sharing some news once I get all the little details worked out. I’m very excited!!
In the meantime, given this bit of winter blahs I’ve succumbed to, I decided that it would be a good time to figure out how to upload some Panama pics onto my blog.
I miss that Panamanian sun!!
A brief rundown and some background…
Our trip to Panama was perfect!
We got a great deal on an all inclusive resort which wound up costing us only a $100-200 bucks more than a flight alone. For two weeks! The booking agent couldn’t figure out how this deal came to be and we weren’t about to have them double check.
So it was decided that we’d spend a few days at the resort to decompress, soak up the rays, indulge in some fine dining and then strap on our backpacks to explore the country.
The scenic pics below cover the resort and then the first part of our journey into the highlands of central Panama and our stay in Boquete. The highlands are beautiful! We hiked in the hills, swam in the river, bathed in some natural hot springs and checked out some petroglyphs (a form of prehistoric rock art found in many cultures around the world and at many times. They are made by carving, etching, incising, rubbing, and pounding the rock surface to create images.)
This all took place around Christmas time, so we happened across parades and festivals almost everywhere we went. The parades were hilarious… people from around the area would stand around for hours in anticipation of the town firetruck which was loaded with Christmas lights to lead the parade around the main square. Following closely behind the truck would be some locals in their decorated cars.
