For me, this is the best time of year in Panama. I love the rainy season. The last few days have had consistent rain and the days have been wonderful.
Luckily the rainy season is longer than the dry season. Lilliam and I get all of our running around done in the morning and have the rest of the day to enjoy the freshness that comes with the rain.
Not that the rainy season doesn’t have its problems. Depending on where you live, it can be a little extreme. I know some bike riders that prefer the dry season. Also, there is always a danger of problems caused by the rain. Sometimes roads become closed, bridges may disappear, there may be landslides, and rivers can overrun their normal boundaries.
When I lived in Boquete, I used to keep a dehumidifier running in the closets to lower the mold problem. I had to pitch all of my VHS tapes and threw out many leather products until I understood the prevention.
Now in David, I don’t have those problems. I can swim in the mornings and watch the rain in the afternoons and my closets don’t require a dehumidifier. It just doesn’t get better than this.
As a side note, I want to thank all the email writers that have written to see if I am OK or if I am planning on closing the blog. My plans are to continue the blog, but I have more than I can keep up with at the moment.
I also am having a problem with my eyes that will require laser surgery and the appropriate machine is not available in Panama to perform the surgery, so it will have to be postponed.
The problem my be seen in my posts because it is more difficult to check my writing and missing letters or misspelled words are easily missed.
I will try to keep the one liners going, but available time will dictate how much I post.
It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. Go out and enjoy it.
