Photo Challenge: Relic

Photo Challenge: Relic  Share a photo of what “relic” means to you — it could be your still-running 1979 Honda Accord Hatchback, an historic building in your town, or an old, rusted farm implement poking up through the long grass in a field.  


A little old house I passed while riding in the country.

This building is right in town, and appears to have been a school for little kids.

    This looks like so much fun. I have an off the topic question. I have a standby ticket to panama and was hoping to go down this week for a few days but the weather forecast shows 80% chance of rain everyday for 10 days. How is the weather now? Does it rain an hour or two in the am then okay for much of day or does it rain throughout the day. I know I can’t predict for sure. Just wondered if there was a bit a pattern when it says 80%. Any thoughts would be great. I hate to come to see the Panama Canal in a total downpour all day! Thanks


    • We are in the rainy season so you can expect rain every day but usually it is sunny in the morning, clouds up in the afternoon, starts to rain in the late afternoon, and then clears up again in the evening. I say usually, but it is an el niño year and things seem to be a bit different. Sometimes it is cloudy in the morning and occasionally even sprinkles a bit, but we are getting less real rain. Also, I am close to the Costa Rica border on the west side of the country. Panama City should be similar but different areas can have different weather. If it does rain though, at least the rain is warm and not nearly as unpleasant, and it is cooler afterwards. Bring an umbrella and shoes that can get wet (just in case) and you should be fine.

    Great. Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like it shouldn’t be too bad. What an incredible adventure for you living there. Hope you have a wonderful stay.

    By the way, I noticed you were an RN. Me too 61 and hoping to retire some day. I have done a lot if traveling and speak decent Spanish. It would be so fun to do what you are doing if only for a year or two. But my husband has a much smaller comfort zone so I don’t see that happening. Oh well. quick trips when I can anyway. Best of luck to you!


    • If you can communicate in Spanish, life here really isn’t that much of an adjustment. We need to talk to your husband! It can be a very good life here. I hope you can retire while you are young and healthy enough to enjoy yourselves. Nursing is a tough job sometimes and the system isn’t making it any easier these days.
