Panama Trip Ends

Ho Hum - my vacation has now ended. I leave tomorrow to return back to the States. Overall, it was an excellent adventure. Being an urbanite, I had thought Panama City would be the favorite of the 3 towns that I had visited. Well, it was not.


More on Bocas Town

E-mail Print
There are no shortage of beaches and water activity here in Bocas Town. One can tell the difference between the local verses the tourists. If the large backpacks on young college-age students did not give it away, shorts and t-shirts are widely worn by tourists. Some are carrying surfboards. The locals are use to the warm climate and are usually wearing long slacks and for some long-sleeve, rolled up shirts.

Something to Rant About

This is something I found rather funny. A member of our vacation group brought with him his housekeys. Okay - yes, you locked up your house before leaving for the airport, so of course, you would have your housekeys with you - I understand this. But what is funny and peculiar is that he brought it with him on our outings and excursions.

I received this email from a friend who received a memoir from another friend (an Aussie) who spent 18 months living and working in Shanghai, China. This is his experience living in the Far East! It's a fascinating read about life in China from the perspective of a Westerner.

Boquete Tree Trek

tree trek While in Boquete, we took an adventurist excursion - a canopy tour of Panama's forest, the Boquete Tree Trek! Also called ZipLine. Not for the faint in heart and certainly not for those deathly afraid of heights! This is an adventure where one will glide through tall trees and encounter a breathtaking view of the forest and waterfalls beneath your feet.

Of course one cannot visit Panama without seeing the 8th Engineering Wonder of the World - the Canal. It is a Must-See, a Must-Go! The Canal fuels the country's economy therefore making water as Panama's greatest commodity.
