Thanksgiving Pizza

rain 74 °F

Today we said goodbye to Panama City and hello to Boquete. We took a very short domestic flight on the appropriately under-rated Air Panama, an airline that will be hard to forget. The customer service agent who checked us in seemed to have apprenticed at Aeroflot based on her gruff mannerisms and lack of hustle. Computer technology must still be a few years off as everything was accomplished using color-coded cardboard paper and a sharpie.

Today has been a recovery day for us after some very full days in Panama City. Long naps were enjoyed by all this afternoon once we settled into our lovely 2 bedroom suite located on the lower level of a mansion with a great view of Volcan Baru. Later, the kids did some homeschool work on account of the rain. Rather than describing or showing photos of this charming place worthy of House Hunters International, we'll mention that the owners love their dogs, and we have included some unauthorized photos of their art which is everywhere.

We'll be staying here for 5 nights, so let us know if you'd like more dog photos. Happy to oblige.

Boquete is one of the top destinations in Panama due to its proximity to the national park and temperate climate and is a favorite choice for American retirees. While waiting for our luggage today at the airport in DavĂ­d, one expat who moved to Boquete bragged that she and her husband live comfortably on social security benefits and enjoy paying NO REAL ESTATE TAXES on their brand new home for the first 20 years. Hmm...

Our Thanksgiving Dinner was at a local pizza parlor. The clean up afterwards was something for which to be very thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
