Today we drove up to Boquete in a 30 passenger van. I thought my Uncle was joking since there are only 8 of us, plus 2 of our party are still under the 3 ft mark, but it turns out all the extra space is somehwhat necessary. It was a looooooooong trip (8 hrs+) and I am still on my suegra schedule of sleeping all day and going to the mall. But I have to admit that to complain would be awfully whiny since now I'm sitting in a really nice hotel suite overlooking a beautiful river in Panama's coffee country. I have no idea what we are doing tomorrow and can't even say how happy I am that I am not in charge of directing this trip. I just get to kick back relax and translate once in awhile. Love Panama.
