Downtown

Yesterday a good friend and I decided to go downtown and look around a bit. It was Mothers Day so it was unusually quiet, but most of the stores were open so it was a good day to go. There is more activity during the Christmas season but it didn’t look like everything was quite in full swing yet.

The park is a fun place to hang out anytime. There are big shade trees, plenty of benches, lots of people to watch, and if you are lucky you will see one of the iguanas who live there.

That was yesterday. Today and for the coming week we are house sitting nearby. As we went home this morning to pick up a few things we saw Volcan Baru! Between the rain and the daily clouds that have covered it, we haven’t seen the volcano for weeks.

Life in the tropics. My Seattle daughter is sending me pictures of snow and I am looking at palm trees and parrots.

    Mary,

    Here’s the blog post from Kris Cunningham, a Florida transplant living in David, Panama. I’ve set my sights on the highlands town of Boquete, located about 40 minutes up the new 4-lane highway from lowland (and HOT) David.

    Kris was a nurse in Sarasota, FL. Her husband is a musician and a handyman.

    • I’m not sure if your note ended up where you intended. You can send your friend the link https://blog.thepanamaadventure.com
      So you are going to the highland (and COLD) Boquete 😀 Seriously, it’s great that we can be as warm or cool as we prefer. We live on the north edge surrounded by trees so it’s very pleasant for us especially after being acclimated to Florida.

    Have you noticed at Parque de Cervantes that the trees all have small signs near them telling what they are?

  3. Great pix, and a fun day, Kris. Here’s hoping you and your ‘good friend’ can have more of them.

  4. Strangely enough Kris, I was in downtown David yesterday, working on getting my bearings. May have walked right by you.
    After a long day of flights and a wonderful day seeing the sights on the bus, I’m just relaxing catching up in sleep and exploring.
    Just got my new chip for my cell phone today, just in time for Ed to call me and tell me the internet guys where going to be at my house in 1/2 and hour. So I dashed home in a cab…$3(it cost more to get into a cab in Canada) and made it home it time. So I am up and running and hoping to connect with you soon.
    All the videos and your instructions, made getting through the terminal in Panama City easy.

    Thanks again, you are a great help for all of us navigating Panama for the first time.

    If in the park, watch out for the iguanas urinating on the innocent public below. We narrowly missed a soaking on our visit to the park last year. It sent out quite a substantial stream!!
