bocas has been absolutely incredible so far.
met a girl on the beach yesterday who had come here for a few days to give her boyfriend space. they have been living in costa rica for the past seven months, but she is originally from quebec and is going home the week after me. we spent the whole day and night together sharing stories, advice, and discussing matters of life. i was telling her the troubles i’ve been having lately of dealing with the fact that my journey here in panama is rapidly coming to an end, and i’m not looking forward to the return home. she gave me some solid words which really made me feel pretty good (still not happy to go home though). she told me that everything is part of life’s journey and spending too much time in one place ruins the magic and beauty of the place for you. valid point.
today i went to bluff beach with a friend i met last night. the beach was absolutely gorgeous, the sun was hot, the water was crystal clear and cooling. the visuals i have had here in panama do not compare to anything i could have ever thought of. i’m just trying to really take in my last few days here and engrave into my mind the sights i see and people i meet.
it’s amazing how many crazy thoughts i have a day. panama is truly inspiring.
