I´ve found Paradise

House by the Beach

sunny 82 °F

Monday, 11/1/10. Yesterday my landlord, Carlos, his wife, daughter and baby boy and me came to my new residence. We got the house ready for me and Carlos cooked ribs and chicken on the BBQ. They left around 6 and I was exhausted. This house has AC in the bedroom, so I spend a comfortable night sleeping in the cool air. I took a cold water shower this morning. It wasn´t too bad. It is like jumping into a cool pool, you soon get used to it. I did some hand laundry and hung it on the line. It reminded me of doing it as a teenager. Then I ate breakfast, got dressed, put on some sunscreen, grabbed my purse and umbrella and walked 1/2 mile to the highway to catch a bus into Coronado $1. The umbrella was suggested to me as a way to stay cooler in the sun and it sure worked. It´s also a good idea to carry one as you never know when a rainstorm is going to kick up here. I bought a cheap phone and bought a phone card since I am out in the boonies with no phone and no internet. I should have internet by the end of the week, so today I am using the internet cafe. When I get home this afternoon, after lunch at McDonalds, I am putting on my bathing suit and heading for the beach. Then I´ll have a quiet dinner and veg.

I don´t know when I will be able to post again as this week is holiday week for Panama and I am told that even though I will get a bus into town I probably won´t get one going back because they will be filled coming out of Panama City and will just pass me by. So I am stuck at the beach for the rest of the week. Rough life, huh?
