buses in Panama

Buses in Panama are lots of fun. All the luggage goes on the roof, so 3 men work the buses, one to drive, one to go on the roof and tie up the bags and one to stand at the door shouting the destination to everyone. They blast out the music all the way, so it depends who you get to what type of music you get. The first journey was 4 hours so we got the reggaeton all the way. Seems it is big in Panama too. Then when people get on the bus they greet everyone with a buenas dias. It is so brilliant. It was a big fiesta in Panama. A three day bank holiday for the independence from Colombia and the Day of the Dead. So exciting to be in Latin America for Day of the Dead. I wish we had it in England. I think it is a wonderful concept. I followed a marching band around on the night, lots of people held candles. All the way round I thought of my dad and grandad. Then I had a rum and coke and thought of them some more. That{s what it{s all about.

Back in Costa Rica. Im waiting to get a boat to go to a bay where there is no electricity, a huge poplualtion of scarlet macaws and lots of tropical rain forest. Sounds exciting.
