Where I stayed
Canal House, Casco Antiguo
We met an ex pat yesterday that owns a little market about one block from our hotel, called Super Gourmet. We got to chatting and found that there is another market in Bocas, the original, where we'll be traveling to next. He also gave us a bunch of rec's for dinner and drinks in the Casco as well as our next adventure - Bastimentos in Bocas del Toro. Ohh...and did I mention, he's got a german shep/border collie mix named 'VEGAS'. I'm in love and getting my dog fix whilst away from Rox and Yosh.
Last night we went to a place called 'Indigo'
I grabbed some breakfast from Super Gourmet and brought it back to the hotel, and now we're getting ready to just walk around the Casco and take it all in. This place is reminiscent of Detroit, in that there's beauty, poverty, charm, crime and potential all wrapped into a small little area. There is such beautiful architecture here and as Amber would say, this place has good bones. It just needs some consistent TLC. Because you'll have that gorgeous architecture right next to a dilapidated building. See....it feels like home : )
Bye for now, we'll shoot you more later!
