My Sunday started in Casco Viejo, Panama, at 7:30 a.m. when, after walking the dog and fixing our backpack we headed to Gamboa to catch the boat to go fishing in one of the world´s biggest artificial lakes.
Gatun lake is unbelievable. I´ve been visiting it for the last ten years, and I´ve enjoyed each trip. It is an incredibly alive green emerald full of monkeys and species not even known to mankind yet (ask any Smithsonian scientist in Panama, they´ll tell you is a true mine).
In just five hours, we saw crazy monkeys, crocodriles, birds of all tastes, pelicans fishing in sweet waters? sure! why not. And just when you think you´ve seen it all, a bar, in the middle of nowhere (one of the towns bordering the protected area), offers you the best frozen beer to cool you down from the hot, tropical weather. Ten beers for $6. What a day!
Back to my beloved home in Casco Antiguo at 1 p.m…..
