Every time I sign on here lately, WordPress has messed with settings! It’s a bit disorienting lol. I wander around looking for the buttons they moved….
So last night we had a small dinner party with a lady name Anne Gordon and our past B&B host, Penny. Anne runs a Whale Watching Tour and an Embera Indian Tour here in Panama that are both based out of Panama City. She came to Panama years ago as an animal trainer in a movie and stayed. She has a degree in biology and was a zoologist as well. She almost didn’t come, was tired and wanting a break at the time, and like me, Panama was never on her radar. She ended up intrigued enough about the movie and the country and signed on. And fell in love, with the people and the country. She actually ended up married to the chief of the Emberas – he asked her out (in his language, no English). What an interesting life she has led. Anne also leads Spirit Walks and Wisdom Retreats and follows a spiritual path. Fascinating.
Penny from the B&B introduced us and brought her along to the dinner we had invited our host to as a thank you for putting us up so generously last month while we searched for housing. Our B&B host claims to not be spiritual at all, thinks it’s all bunk, so for us to end up with Anne as our guest through her is amazing. We had extended the invitation to our host last week, but when we found out that Anne decided to stay an extra day at the B&B, we invited Anne to come as well. We knew nothing about her at the time. It was not planned but definitely felt arranged by more than our human selves.
She gave us some great ideas about what we want to do and shared some cool information about vortexes around here and the community of spiritual folks we are interested in. (By spiritual, we don’t mean organized religion.) We feel encouraged by meeting her, and her tours are now definitely on my list. I have always wanted to do a Whale Watching Tour and her retreat also sounds awesome. She is very in touch with nature and I loved her whole vibe. It felt like meeting a member of the family.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the discussion and hope we get to visit with her again soon! And next week, our massage friend is coming for dinner and an evening of who knows what! Life is getting really interesting. I love meeting all these new people and doing all these new things. Even riding the buses or taxis are fun experiences people watching and trying to decipher the conversations!
