Picked up my rental car today. Drove it up the Western ridge overlooking Boquete on Volcanito road. One difference from the United States is that all the schools have fences around them with barbed wire at the top. When I asked my guide why just the schools had barbed wire on their fences, he chuckled and said that’s the only way they can keep the kids from escaping. I don’t know how true that is, so take it for its worth. And, of course, I finished my drive in the mountains by trying another Panamanian restaurant. All that food again for less than $5. You can eat really well down here for not a lot of money. Tomorrow I think I may head down to the beaches, so stay tuned for those pictures tomorrow.
