Well, Bocas del Torra

sunny 30 °C
View South America - out of Sorts on lidster's travel map.

Bocas is funky, relaxed, friendly and full of heavy drinkers. Apparently sex tourism is rife globally but it will surely never outstrip booze tourism. Truly amazing how many people find getting hammered more agreeable close to a beach. it is also quite suprising, to those of a more sheltered upbringing, what said drunkards will do once drunk. I pointed my camera at one and she inexplicably did this.



Geev and I have been mosying about the place. Town is ok but the main attraction are the beaches. All a water taxi (and occasionally a walk) away but probably all the better for that. We tried to get to a place called Wizard beach. Signpost below:


And walked straight past this sign and into the jungle. Got completely lost, saw an alligator, got stuck in knee deep swamps and never did get to the beach.

I know I mentioned the bus ride in the last entry. I also realise that me moaning on about buses is pretty boring but I did want to post this video of young Geev trying to drink a warm beverage on the bus. I thought it funny.

Small things and small minds. And Geev is quite small.

Am off to somewhere else tomorrow. Not sure where but will be sure to inform you about the quality and comfort of any public transport journeys I should take. Geev flies to San Jose manana and will be back in the first world Sunday. Adios amigo. Thanks for coming and thanks for waking me up last night by slapping me in the face repeatedly. Most refreshing. Happy trails.
