Walk About Bajo Boquete

My first day in Panama without my guide. After church took a walk down to Bajo Boquete, Panama, I grabbed a pastry and coffee at a well-recommended shop, Sugar and Spice, on the main strip and meandered down to the town square. I enjoyed some people watching there as well as the beautiful blue skies with their white clouds as I looked to the north and the Caribbean side. Then I noticed the temperature was rapidly dropping, so I turned around and looked south towards the Pacific, and dark skies and rain clouds were rolling in fast. I tried to beat the storm by heading back up the mountain, but I didn’t make it. I got rained on for about 40 minutes of my walk. After I got back up on the Alto Boquete and the rains stopped, I went to a local Panamanian restaurant about a 2-minute walk from my Airbnb and grabbed dinner. I got headed back just a time to watch it rain again, and now I’m sitting on the front patio enjoying a cold drink of water and watching the clouds fall on the town.
