    ... heading to red frog beach on Bastiementos Island, with Heidi and co. The beach was lovely, surrounded by jungle, the ocean surprisingly wavy but still the water crystal clear.

    ... has been relatively calm, maybe people were heading back home since it was Sunday. We pushed our way through the crowds of people on the concourse for perhaps 100m to get to the bus stop for Changuinola (via Almirante, where we were going) only to find out that the queue was part of the crowd we came through.
