We love our Downtown Boquete neighborhood.  Only  3-1/2  blocks from the heart of town, it's just far enough off the beaten track to offer peace, but walking distance to the Language Schools and all the adventures Boquete has to offer: Coffee Tours; Rafting & Kayaking; Horseback Riding; Hiking; Zip Line Tree Trek;  Birding; ATV Tours, and more.

Plus, our street is full of real Panama life, inhabited  mostly by farmers who have lived on this street for thirty and forty years.  Horses pass by on a daily basis along with  foot traffic mostly from Ngobe-Bugle people.  Our fish vendor, Miguel, comes by once a week in his red truck. It's peaceful and safe, but never dull.

          News About The Boys

          Mrs. Bliss told us there is a caterpillar here that is pink and fuzzy, and, if you touch it, its fur will stick in your skin and sting you! This happened to her daughter, Aylana. It was very painful and they had to pull the fibers out using tape! There are also scorpions and snakes, but I think there are more poisonous snakes in Florida.

          William is busy, busy. In the morning he does his home schooling (Dad is his teacher!). Then, around 9:00 he rushes happily off to the local, Catholic, Spanish-only school where he audits the 4th grade! He's been doing some skim boarding but we are seriously missing the skating. Surfing looms in the near future. For a change we finally have kids on our street to play with, (not to mention dogs and roosters, snakes, toads, etc.) and it is wonderful making new friends. Still, William really misses his friends and family back in Sarasota. It's wonderful to get messages from the folks back home.

          We send a special "Hello How Are Ya?" back to Nolen, Max, Connor, Emily W. and Teah!

          Larry is Mr. Handy! Between homeschooling and making repairs on the house, he is never without something to do. And we have gone from never seeing him, to having him around all the time. Hmmmmmm.....
