After the successful visit of our lovely veterinary surgeons from Italy, Laura & Emilio, and their overwhelming enthusiasm for the bothies…..we decided to bite the bullet and take bookings for Carnival. Quite frankly, it’s scary. Despite the good reviews we’ve had so far, we are still nervous about how to describe the accommodation. This is probably the busiest week of the year in Panama, everyone quits the city for the ‘interior’, and it’s high summer here, so the preferred destination is the coast. Our first guests are a family of six from Venezuela, tomorrow the Spanish arrive, and later in the week guests from Bolivia and the United States…… I hope the weather stays good!!
