Panama day 20 Jan 24 2011
Oh, joy. More time in the car! We drove to Las Lahas beach. We went for a swim on the ten mile stretch of yellow sand gorgeousness! There was hardly anyone else around. I assumed that we would have some more chill time in the hammocks by the sea but it was almost dinner time and my dad thought it would be a good idea to get in the car and dive some more in order to find a place to eat. We found a little place with a straw roof. The food was amazing! I had fresh shrimp done in a seasoned tomato sauce and the requisite chilled coca cola. The coke comes in old fashioned glass bottles and unlike in the US it's made with cane sugar.
p.s. swimming can last a very long time when the water is as warm as the air.
