On January 6, I flew to Panama City, Panama. I’d spent about 12 hours at home after a 2,000 mile drive from Mobile, AL. This was the view on my drive home.
It was freezing cold, and moments before the photo, I hit a patch of black ice and ended up in the borrow pit between the lanes of the Interstate. I barely avoided hitting any signs or posts along the road. In the end, I didn’t get so much as a scratch on my truck, and didn’t even get stuck in the snow! I got very lucky. Thank God for four-wheel drive.
On my way out of Bozeman, we had to sit on the runway for an extra hour while they de-iced. I also got to see the process, which I’ve never gotten to see before.
Whenever I visit a new city, I like to spend the first day just walking around. I’ll take a cab, ride the bus/streetcar, and try to figure out how things work. Here’s some of the shots I got:
Later that evening, I got some amazing city views from my AirBNB.
Adventuring around the city
I went to get a ticket on a ferry to Isla Taboga, a small island to the South in the Pacific Ocean.
A short 30 minute ferry ride takes you to a beautiful little island to the South of the city.
I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures while actually on the island, but I had a lot of fun. I had a Piña Colada in a pineapple, ate a locally made empanada, and got a savage sunburn.
I’ve been hiding inside while my burns heal (my shoulders were the worst), but will be sending more when I start venturing out again.
