puerte viejo, bocas, panama city



in puerte viejo we stayed at this really cool hostel and they had nothing but hammocks and places to set up tents, we shopped for a couple of souvenirs and got some food. we had to leave the next day in the morn so we hit the hay early, we left for the boarder early in the morn and met this 53 year old man from ottawa on our way to tortoungo, he was an interesting fella, he talked about nothing else but girls, we hung out with him for most of our stay in bocas del toro. we stayed at a cool hostel on this little island, the first night we desided that we would get wasted so on our way to that point we bought this shirt, it has the logos of 27 bars in town and when you go to one of those bars you get a free drink. we were only able to get 3 drinks in before the bars closed at 10 so we decided to get wasted the next day.

the next day we went on a boat tour to do some snorkling and relaxing on some neighboring white sand beaches, the wildlife there was really amazing, it wasnt anything compared to utila in honduras but it was still really amazing. we got burnt, mostly on the backs of our arms, we have tanned well enough in most other areas. when we got back we got a drink, did some internet, went to another bar had a drink, went to another bar had a drink, went to another bar, had a drink, had dinner, and went to a bar and had another drink, i stayed at our hostel after that as well as craig, ryan wanted to get more done, he ended up going to five more bars and came back quite smashed. i dont know exactly how drunk he was, but we was drunk in the morning still. so ryan withstanding, we got packed quickly and went to the water taxi, it was about and hour ride, to a small town that we didnt get to know very intimately, there we hopped on a coach bus to panama city, ryan had sobered up by then so he was feeling pretty hungover while i felt fine, the bus ride really made ryan and craig sick because it was up the crazyest turning road ive ever been up not only was it turny but it was up and down so they felt really bad until we got to the bottom of them mountain on the other side, after a 10 hour bus ride we made it to panama city. we took a taxi to the hostel and arranged the for the sailboat to columbia, it was about a 5 day trip so we have to find some entertainment for the boat and the bus ride. i wont be blogging until i get back so if no one hears from me for a week dont be too worried, i will be on the carribean sea sailing to columbia but i will be back on when i get there

dont worry its not a drug sailboat,

missing everyone back home

Hi leigh, good to hear from you again, nice really nice to have another perspective of Ryan and his 'intoxicated' ways! Sounds like the three amigos have blazed a trail through bars of Panama. Hope your sailing trip is full of gentle waves, tranquil times and sunsets most of us dream of. Happy trails. Love mom Cory.
