Just a few hours left before we take off to Punta San Lorenzo in Veraguas for our first 10 day multidisciplinary residency; there are so many details to take care of and so much to tell you about our first week with Brian and Claire exploring Panama – history, present and idiosincracies – but so little time… one must also sleep 🙂 So I leave you with this beautiful post by Brian Holmes about their first impressions of our SUELO project. And I will add that it is resulting to be a wonderful and profound experience that is only just starting. Upon our return, we will report on everything every little sweet thing! Until then!
