Survival training and a German visitorFebruary 23, 2020 in Panama ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C
Waking up in nature here means that hearing monkeys, birds, frogs and many other animals. Just before sunrise is the loudest time in the forest and we really enjoy it.
We spent the morning with a "survival training" like cutting and frying platanos on a wood stove and peeling oranges so that you can drink them straight. This natural orange juice is super sweet and refreshing!
In the afternoon, we went to another part of the lake (of course by boat) to pick bananas and lemons. Gregorio showed us how to cut a banana tree with a machete without causing the fruit falling on the ground. Other than that, we relaxed in the hammocks, went for a swim in the lake, used the Tarzan swing, enjoyed yummy food and had great conversations with our hosts and their friend Clemente who came by for a visit.
At about 4pm, we headed back to the city. Gregorio and Irma dropped us of at our Airbnb - not missing out on giving us some bananas, oranges and homemade lemonade before leaving.
We quickly did some grocery shopping and took the bus to the airport - because today, we expected a visitor from Germany. And yes, just when we arrived at the gate, Michl came out!!
Good to meet a friend at the other side of the world who is willing to travel with us for the next 2 weeks - welcome to cycling life 😀Read more
