Relaxing in the apartment
in Panama City

At Torres de Alba

It’s been a few days since my last post. The main reason for this is that our current hotel doesn’t have Internet access. Well, it does – you can either take the elevator to the computer room and use their computers, or you can pay $7 to get the Internet in your hotel room for a day. Since I needed to use my own laptop...

A relaxing day

Today we totally took it easy after having a long, but wonderful day before. We had breakfast in our pajamas again. Then we had the people at the hotel do our laundry. Jen was thrilled that she didn’t have to do it herself. We then wrote and read blogs and I did some computer work and e-mailing. The girls ran around in the yard here...

Cerro Ancón & Dinner Show

We got home late last night so I didn’t get a chance to blog, but we had so much fun yesterday! We slept in a bit, and had breakfast about 8:30 or so, in our pajamas. Then took a taxi to the top of a nearby hill, Cerro Ancón. There were great views of the city from up there, as well as of the Panama...

The Panama Canal and more

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...

Sweet Sunday

Sweet Sunday

Today was a lot of fun. We went to church in the morning. I had printed out a paper with a map and address of the church before we left home, and we gave it to the taxi driver. We also handed him a map and picture of the Temple, which we thought would be near the church. He took us to the Temple, and...

The Embera Indian Village

What an awesome day! (See pictures at the end of this post.) This morning, after breakfast, we were picked up at our hotel by Anne, who was raised in Seattle, but has married into an indigenous Indian tribe in Panama who call themselves “Embera“. We took a one hour drive through lush tropical jungle, and then rode in a canoe (powered by a motor) for...

Biking on the Causeway
in Panama

Biking on the Causeway

Today, I woke up about 7am, after about 11 hours of sleep, which seemed just about right with how much sleep we lost the night before. During my shower, I could hear pretty bird songs loud and clear, as there’s an open window in the bathroom. It was great! Once I got ready, I did my tai chi and a little standing yoga to get...

We're Here!!!

After a long and hard night of sleeping in airports and on planes, we finally made it to Panama! We flew from Salt Lake to Los Angeles at about 8:50pm, had a 3 hour layover, and then left for Houston at about 1:00am. When we got there a few hours later, we had 3 1/2 hour layover, and then we finally boarded the plan to...

Through a Child's Pencil

When I woke up this morning, I came downstairs to find Emily drawing pictures. Emily loves to color and draw, and today she was drawing pictures of what we would see in Panama. I thought I’d post them here for you. Emily is 5 years old.
