We gave up our place at the beach. Believe it or not you can have to much of a good thing. It was very hot and humid and every weekend the panamaians come from the city and Party 24 hours a day until sunday night and then its back to the city. We are renting a lovely house 22km up in the mountains. These mountains are about 2200 feet above sea level and provide lovely views and breezes. This will be home for the next couple of months.
I was at the market and they were selling fresh shrimp outside for 5 dollars a pound. I got 8 large shrimp for my 5 bucks. The proper way to clean these is to bend the head back and pull it off. I did one that way and almost barfed. The brains cames oozing out. I cut the heads off the rest of the shrimp, devained them and bbq them. Not to bad for a girl from Cow country. MMMmmm they were tasty.

This is a bus stop. They are all along the highway. Bus service between cities and towns is excellent. Small buses go between close towns but large greyhound type busses go between the larger cities. They are very cheap also. About $2. to go from Gorgona to Panama City (1 hour away)
