Casco Life

Coming back home to Casco Viejo after an European “Grand Tour”

 Panama, Casco Viejo,
Casco Antiguo, San Felipe.

I apologize for not letting you know I was going to dissapear for two weeks or so. I just came back from my honeymoon! The “grand tour” included Switzerland, Italy and London (although only for a night). Clara and Iranovy made a great job keeping the blog up while I was too busy having fun with my sweet best half. Thanks!

Now that I have sort of come back (my brain isn´t yet convinced) I have yet to re organize my thoughts about all the things I want to write about. I have great articles coming up about the lessons learned in those fantastic historic cities of Europe and what makes them not only special buy valuable.

Although, I have to say… coming back home to Casco Viejo made me smile and relax. This is home.

And a home with tomatoes!!!! I know most of you must be sick by now of my tomato fixation, but I promess to widen the obsession to chili peper (already planted one), ginger, garlic, oregano and a weird fruit I got recently called Granadilla.

For those who do enjoy my tomato fixation, I am very happy to report that during my abscence, my plant produced 3 super fantastic tomatoes and at my arrival it had 4 more going. Very much enjoyed in our breakfasts. By the way, one of the huge elements in European life (at least in the 3 countries we got to visit) was urban agriculture. Italy, chaotic and beautiful, was sprouting lemons, herbs, lettuces and who knows what from every balcony and roof terrace. But I´m getting myself ahead, this is part of the series I´ll be preparing this weekend!

For now, just a pictures of my beloved tomatos before they fall into my cooking pan…
