When I boarded my plane home in January, I knew that I was leaving the island as I knew it at that moment, forever. Fast forward three short months and already so much has changed. The babies we helped raise are completely different monkeys now.
Of course the first stop we made was the ice cream store to order the biggest bowl of Aguaje and Passion Fruit ice cream we could find.
Flying into the Amazon from Panama gave us a completely different (but just as breathtaking) view of the jungle, compared to when we came in from Lima. I don’t think seeing the river from the air will ever get old.
Note to self: when booking a 15 hour layover in Panama, do it during daytime hours..What a strange, uneventful night. I must admit, sleeping in an airport was not all that bad.. aside from the window washers blasting reggaetone above my head at 1am.
