The Sun is Setting on Panama

I got an e-mail yesterday announcing the 2008 Winter Sale for an outdoor gear company.

"That's strange," I thought, "their e-mail software must have messed up. It's not even close to being winter."

I guess you could say that I've adapted to the eternal summer of Panama. In five days it will be time to adapt again, this time to people who speak the same language as me. Eight days after that it will be time to adapt to the polar opposite of Panama - Tokyo.

Longtail Boat

On The Nosy Moth

Longtail Boat, Tup Island, Thailand.

We decided to try Deep water Soloing in Thailand. The boat picked us up from West Railay Beach. We went to one island for DWS, and then at lunch stopped at Tup Island. One can also visit this island on a 4 island speed boat tour of the islands.

The blue, clear, warm water under the blue sky - that was a beautiful day in a beautiful place. Now I know what they mean by tropical paradise.
