Day Trip to David Panama

Today was just a crazy day of scrambling around to get my transportation straightened out.

I decided to postpone the Mexico leg of my trip because of how much I’m struggling with my Spanish in Panama where it is supposed to be night and day easier than the places in Mexico that I had intended to go.

Started the day by driving down to David airport to try to get my Copa Flight linked up to my United flight so my luggage would make it all the way from David to Omaha just to find out that that can’t be done there. 😟

The drive to David was wild because I was using Waze, it sent me the wrong way down a one-way Street tried to get me to make a left-hand turn on a street with no left hand turns but I did finally make it to the airport.

So I had to change my flight from David to Panama City to Friday from Saturday which means I also had to get my covid test a day earlier and book another nights stay in Panama City. Rushed back to Boquete, got my covid test and while I was waiting for the results had some coffee and bacon quiche on a terrace at The Perfect Pair Coffee & Chocolate overlooking Central Ave in Boquete.

Results negative, hooray! Ran up into the cloud forest to by coffee to bring back. Pictures are mostly from that drive Hustled back to the Airbnb to cancel my Mexico flight and after multiple attempts I got my Copa Flight moved to Friday. Arranged to drop my rental car in a day earlier and reschedule my ride to the airport.

All said and done only took me from 8:00 this morning till 4:30 this afternoon. 😤 Grabbed dinner at Big Daddy’s in Bouquete, had their boom boom chicken, Coca-Cola and for dessert I tried the churros. Complete sugar overload! Rush back to Airbnb to pack, put up this post and get ready for the journey back to the States. I have loved my time down here and look forward to my return trip as soon as possible.
