Panamanian mosquitos / Kuna Indians / One painting

i painted and collaged a picture for kudi, it represents her on the right, her shy daughter in the middle, and luciana on the left!
and here's our "great nephew", zack, making fun of uncle richard and aunt wanda..as to how many bottles we packed for panama...

...and did the repellant work...hmm...i think not...we came home looking like we had some horrible diesease!

gorgeous mola's the kuna indians are famous for!

crummy pic of a kuna indian and her beautiful costume...i was so disallusioned when i heard a cell phone ring, while looking at the skyline...turned to the table where the indians placed there wares and one of the women was speaking on her cell phone...progress :(

So glad to be Back HOME

i didn't want to announce that we were out of the country...leaving our home and my precious blog unattended...so now ya' know...we're back and so happy to live here in the usa!
this is not a luxury nor exotic vacation we take each year...it is to get away (yes) but
to see my brother in law, michael, richard's brother who lives in santa catalina, panama.
it is like camping for a week, taking outside ice cold showers, getting in and out of a sandy bed, no matter how you slice it!!!.....but it also means a lot of other exciting adventures occur every single time we go...one is to body surf in a warm clear ocean with barely a soul in site, but for a few random surfers...this just can't happen on the california coast!!!
and then there is Michael...who is a devil may care indiviual, genuine, real, honest, generous and HILARIOUS guy we love and miss!!
for awhile i thought i'd post some art work or hopefully something of interest to some of "YOU"S", that i love that i would also post a pic or two with some of our adventures and sweet happenings that occured while venturing out of our comfortable, spoiled california world!
this is a bed mike made out of wood, we slept above his library and bakery...it is smack dab in the middle of catalina, close enough to hear the pounding surf and see just about EVERY single person that lives in the village, walking up or down the middle of the road, EVERY single day! :)
opening our eyes each morning to this...

and seeing this coconut tree!!!

looking through one window at mikes' new building
across the road

and this...our friend michele's hostel...we met all the young surfers and servers for her restaurant that stayed here...very fun!

hearing the singing voices of these santa catalina kids, in spanish every morning...

this school was a small driveway away from our bedroom window!

...and smelling Diasolina and Lucy's baked goods...

Diasolina (Kudi) is mike's wife
