Celebrating birthdays, a wedding anniversary and we join a family reunion
08/01/2014 - 08/10/2014
When a former colleague of Chad's who is from Colon, Panama learned we would be in Latin America during the summer, the invitations rolled in: a wedding anniversary, two birthday parties and a biannual family reunion. It was a busy week! But among the music, dancing and meeting dozens of Sonia's friendly family members, we got to see some of the sites. Many thanks to Antonio, Sonia's son, who generously shared some of his favorite places with us like the Portobelo National Park on the Atlantic Coast and the Gautan Locks portion of the Panama Canal and of course, Panama City.
