Panama and Back Again

Our scooter on Ometepe-main drag

It´s been a long time.  We made the trip to Panama and back on a Tika Bus.  What an experience for me.  I didnt really sleep on them.  But they had movies, McDonalds and air conditioning so it could have been far worse.  Crossing boarders was a learning experience too.  I didn´t know you had to basically check out and check in with countries.  And I will not have a problem with the TSA next time I fly becuase they are far less invasive than Panama´s equivalent.  No problems at all and on the way back I was a pro. So we have settled in to our temporary digs.  It is really nice to be cooking for ourselves again and getting into an exercise routine.  We have joined this local gym that we go to every day, sometimes twice.  I taught their first Zumba class last night and will teach every Thursday for the rest of the month.  I just offered becuase it would be fun but the owner said I could trade if for a spa service.  Massage anyone?  Just in time for my birthday month!

Here are some pictures of where we´ve been and what we´ve been doing for the past month.
Hospedaje Soma - great room, food and Javier
