We are eating vegetables again!
I even enjoyed a non-iceberg lettuce salad at a restaurant yesterday.
This town is filled with expat retirees, so there are a variety of interesting restaurants (aside from typical Panamanian fare) to choose from. We found baba ganoush and tabouli at Tammy's, so we ordered it to go. We have a fancy kitchen in our Kent Street apartment rental ($50/night); many meals have been made with the local veggies. The carrots and tomatoes here taste exactly like my dad's super sweet garden varieties.

I have been drinking my weight in fruit juices. The two below were served at breakfast the other morning. I have no idea what fruits the juices contained, but they sure were tasty.
This morning I tried my first passionfruit, and while it was beautiful, I'm not sure if I am a fan. It was rather tart, and the seeds were really crunchy. I do think it would be great as a smoothie addition.
We are off to a jungle lodge for four days, where we will be computer free (and possibly without electricity...?). Enjoy your week and I will see you this weekend!
Question: What was the best thing you ate today?
