Es un hermoso día en el barrio. (It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood)

I’m sitting here on the terrace after a very fun bike ride around the neighborhood. The neighbors up the street have the salsa music on. The people behind seem to be preparing for a family picnic on their terrace. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing gently. The birds are singing, the dogs are barking, the kids are playing, and the butterflies are flitting about. So, if you are up north and getting cold, here’s a bit of warm sunshine sent your way  ~~~~~~~>

    And it looks like your neighbors also have to do some grass cutting. Just like some of ours. We still have some music coming from the parque but so glad this session of patria days is over…until next week. 🙂

    • That’s an empty lot on the corner, and it gets cut when it’s so high you can’t see around the corner and someone hollers at the owner to get it cut. Next week? Are there more parades, or is it other sorts of festivities? Are there any holidays without parades?! 😀

        It’s Shout Out in Los Santos. It’s on Sunday but Monday will be the holiday. It’s the town where you took the pictures of the statues. The first call for Panama’s independence from Spain was “shouted out” there. And then of course two weeks later is the independence from Spain day. 🙂 I’m just a font of useless information. 🙂

        • On the contrary, this is very useful information! If I want to check out all these festivities I need to know what’s going on. My neighbor told me there will be another parade here on Sunday, but a different sort with carts and women in traditional dress (if I understood correctly, which is never guaranteed)
