The thermal pools in El Valle that are said to hold healing waters. We found the water very relaxing, lol!

Most who visit the healing springs of El Valle, also opt to take advantage of the mud that is there and that which also holds healing.

My friend, Gustavo and I. Lisa Gawlas told me prior to leaving that I would meet this wonderful man and that he carried a message for me inside his heart. She was so right on!

Sunrise over the canal on our way to the airport the morning we departed.

These are a few of my favorite pictures from our adventure in Panama. I hope you will enjoy seeing them in this format as I give you a pictorial tour of some of the wonderful places we visited. I left the country with a feeling of fullness in my heart(kinda like the fullness you feel when you hold your baby or someone you love deeply for the first time). The whole experience was life altering for me. I feel like the caterpillar who has just climbed from his cocoon transformed into the beautiful butterfly, and that, my friends, is an awesome feeling!

With Peace and Love,
Peacelilly
