It was rainy and cold in Austin today and that had me thinking of warmer, sunnier days. Last summer I was in Panama with Jennifer and Nayane. Looking through pictures and videos today had me dreaming of soft sand between my toes, a Pina Colada in my hand and my best friends at my side. I had a great time there. Learned a family recipe for Empanadas. Indulged in fresh fruit and seafood daily. Survived rides on the Diablo Rojo of Panama City. And fell in love with the Pearl Islands.
