I’m back in Panama after having been away for a year. Kathleen and I arrived in the country about a month ago and headed straight out to the Veraguas coast. We remained in residence at Los Islotes until this week. After months of lockdown in
Lief and I have tromped a lot of beaches. From Nicaragua to Belize, from Uruguay to Ecuador, from the shores of Curaçao and St. Croix to the coasts of France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Vietnam, Thailand, Down Under, and on and on, we’ve seen most
