I wonder how thin I’d be if I had to pedal to keep the computer powered up.
This is an important question anyone wanting to move here should ask. Fellow bloggers Joel and Kris have done a good job of integrating themselves into the community they live in. Because of that, they recently were asked to be judges at a local bilingual school.
This appears to be one of the few bilingual schools I haven’t been in. It is always rewarding to interact with the young people in Panama.
Kris and Joel, I applaud you.
Here is Kris’s post of their day behind the judging tables. Kris also has several YouTube videos that are worth watching as well as a performance of Joel singing Love Potion #9 for the students.
Time to turn over a new leaf. With my luck it’ll be poison ivy.
Nothing cures insomnia quite like realizing it’s time to get up.
Saturday, Lilliam helped me decide that I needed to remove a little hair. We all went to see Yani. She always brightens my day, I don’t think I have ever seen her without a smile.
Here is the photo that Lilliam took of me, Yani and my $3.00 haircut.
We got up and had a morning swim. Lilliam brought coffee to the pool and we commented what a beautiful day it was with the sun coming up.
I answered emails and around 9:45 AM we headed out for what I thought was our run to Costa Rica.
As we got to McDonald’s Lillim told me to slowdown because she had forgotten something. I pulled into McDonald’s and she informed me that she had forgotten to tell me she was taking me out for a breakfast of sausage, eggs, muffin, potato cake and Pancakes all topped off with a cappuccino.
When she had brought the coffee to the pool, I completely forgot about having breakfast. We enjoy going to McDs for breakfast, now and then. We returned home again where I was lavished with a couple nice gifts and then we left for Costa Rica for real.
It had been some time since we went to visit with Lilliam’s uncle and his family. They live just inside Costa Rica and we slip in the back way to avoid having to go through the passport checkpoints at Paso Canoas.
I always have a great time. They are the friendliest people one could ever imagine. At the present they have four generations living in their home. Family is important in latin America.
They had a new puppy that spent most of the day on Natalie’s lap. I had to check the car twice before we left for home to make sure Natalie wasn’t hiding her somewhere.
It started raining about 2:30PM and rained until we left around 7:00 PM. We drove home in a very hard rain. My least favorite part of the day.
We made it home with no mishaps so it was a very good day. Lilliam returned with a couple new plants for her garden. Koki checked Natalie out when we got home and realized she had not been faithful and then ignored her for the rest of the evening.
I watched the last hour of Dr. Zhivago, which I has started to watch on Saturday. When I turned it, I reminded myself how lucky I am. It just doesn’t get better than this.
My iPhone just fell down a flight of stairs, but it’s ok, it was in my pocket.
