We’re currently camped on a large lawn behind the Windmill Hostel in El Valle. It’s a nice place, but it turns into party central on the weekends. El Valle (1,800′) is in the bottom of a caldera. It has a nice climate for being located at under 2000′.
The landscape in southern Panama is nothing like we thought it would be (jungle). It looks a lot like the drier parts of California, specifically the foothills.
In Santa Fe we had an encounter with the famous sand fleas of Panama. The person who invented hydrocortisone cream should get the Nobel prize for medicine.
Being out of the US (aka Trumpistan) has one advantage. I don’t have to replace televisions that I throw things at.
To the photos…
