Progress Report: Two months in Panama

Those of you who have been eagerly awaiting the latest installment will have realised this video comes more than a month after my last report.  This is partly due to the three-week break I enjoyed in England over the Christmas period.  However, I had intended to publish this video more than a week ago.  The clip was dutifully recorded on my fourth week in Panama since my previous video, but there has been so much to explore during my first week two weeks back in the country that I simply ran out of time.

In the video I discuss the highlights of my trip to Panama City and give a brief insight into the Festival of Flowers and Coffee that was being held during my first weekend in Boquete.  The town is high in the mountains in the north of the country and is one of the windiest places I have ever been so please excuse the occasional interference that affected the quality of the recording.

As ever, this was filmed without any prior rehearsal.  While I still make plenty of mistakes, the clip does show I’m making progress.  I mention Panama’s highest peak, Volcan Baru, towards the end of the video.  Sadly my prediction that I wouldn’t be able to fit in a hike to the top proved correct.  I did though discover some beautiful scenery while searching for waterfalls elsewhere in the countryside.

Finally, you’ll be pleased to know I’ve since shaved!
