In this week’s video, Emily, Marie, and Aysia share some of their memories from Spanish speaking countries. My niece recently asked us to create a video for her Spanish class in school and we thought it would be a great opportunity to share with our readers, as well. Some of the memories include Dia de los Muertos in Mexico, Machu Pichu in Peru, ziplining in Costa Rica, the...

Today, we had another wonderful daily breakfast at the Balboa Inn. (I especially love the fresh fruit.) Then we had a taxi pick us up and stay with us most of the day. He offerred to do so the night before when he dropped us off, so we had our own driver today for about $50.  One thing I forgot to mention yesterday about Panama...
