Horseback tours, the horse, and little one

Our horseback ride to Bermejo Falls is one of the most popular tours we offer.  Since we leave from the inn, we have the horses here and ready beforehand (hopefully…unless one has wandered off in the pasture and refuses to be caught, which also happens….).  Our son is one, and loves visiting the horses!  Since they are not here every day, it can be a surprise when they are here.  Take a look at the time series – as he spots the horses and then mounts them!  I think most of us have the same feeling as we go out on a horseback adventure-though we may not show it as much: What’s that? Really a Horse! I can get up.  Hey I’m up. Hey this is fun! Now I’m confident!   Cele, my husband, guided this tour, thus the camo pants.

Jeepers, Creepers A Blog, Really?

Alto Piedra Waterfall

My husband and I are building an inn in Santa Fe, Veraguas, Panama.   http://coffeemou

I have been the lucky one of us who will be blogging about our experiences.  So far, this is what we’ve learned:

1) People in Panama love rules and enforcing them

2) People in Panama love avoiding rules

This forms a dance to see who is the most beyaco, which for its tamer meaning, is the person who is able to throw themselves into an activity, manipulate, and get the upper hand.  They are the ones where you say, hmmm, I wish I would have thought of that, but wonder if you would have really done the same thing because it is kind of creepy.   

I am reminded of what the cacique of the Ngabe-Bugle said, after legislators passed a law whereby mining companies and hydroelectric companies could pursue operations on autonomous Ngobe-Bugle land without the indigenous consent,  “Panama should not just be for the beyacos“.

I agree and nothing calls this home more than the process of setting up and starting a small business in Panama.
