I’m in a “bar” in Elefante, in the Lemon Cays. Actually, I’m at a grass hut that happens to have a shaky internet connection and a very large stereo. I had planned on a second post about the trip with Bredio up the river, but the internet is just too unreliable to post pictures and information of any size. It took me forty five minutes just to check my email. I didn’t want to leave anyone hanging though, so a quick update.
We are in Lemon Cays, headed to Porvenir this afternoon to tuck up in the mangroves so we can paint the hull of the ship. Our next set of guests arrive Monday in Carti. We will be leaving the San Blas on the 20th, bound for Portobelo. I am told that that is a proper city, so I should have proper internet there. I will be doing a bunch of diving, as well as uploading anything and everything I have to bring you guys up to speed. The departure from San Blas will bring the slow return home…first Portobelo, then Isla Providencia and finally Guanaja before heading back to the states. Panama, Columbia then Honduras.
In the meantime, I am short a camera. My GoPro fried my microSD, which a quick internet search revealed to be a common problem. I am hoping to pick up another card in Panama City…Laura is headed in Friday. I am not sure if I am going…if I do, I’ll update the blog then. If I don’t then I’ll send some money for a card with whoever does go in.
Greg’s getting ancy. Time to get back to work. We met some cool people on Drummer and One World. I’ll be spending my nights typing up blogs and saving them locally, in anticipation of posting them at the first opportunity. Sorry for the brevity. Time to roll.
