“Conjugate this: I skipped class, you skipped class, he skipped class. I can’t write this in Spanish because I wasn’t in class” Laurie Halise Anderson

Actually, we faithfully attended classes all this week each day from 8:00-12:00 in Bocas del Toro.  After class we have enjoyed seeing some of the sights and visiting our friends who have their boats in the local marina.

Coming out of the raining season the flowers are happy.

Habla Ya offers classes in Boquette, Panama City and Bocas del Toro.  The school is well run and the teachers we had were excellent.  We chose Bocas, a ten hour bus ride and water taxi ride from Panama City, because we had cruising friends working on their boats there and we thought we might miss them and the town, as it is in the opposite direction of our planned cruising route.

Bocas is renowned for its surf.  Surf season officially begins in November.  We just missed it.  However, we enjoyed a four hour bike ride along the shore line the day before classes began.

Downtown Bocas boasts a colorful streetscape full of attractive hotels and restaurants.

After sunset the partying starts.  But we were home doing our homework (not).

    I’ve just been grilling Lauren on camping vocabulary and natural parks (including Panama’s Isla Bastimentos) for a Spanish 3 quiz. I think we should both study Spanish in Panama instead — what fun that would be!
