Time’s Up: Costa Rica Pt. V

Kennecott

We ended up in Kennecott because a lady in Homer mentioned it to us once, she said we’d probably like Kennecott and McCarthy, but didn’t really elaborate too much. We weren’t really sure why we were going there: It was…

Boquete, Panama

We are still “sitting” at a house here in Panama. It’s been very relaxing, and although the area is gringo heaven (not much need to speak Spanish), there is tons to do, the climate is perfect (we eat most meals…

Cartagena, Columbia
