Energy is low, Caroline bless her come down with something...she insisted on forging on, choosing to ride it out rather than be boxed in some hotel room. We reached the Panama border around mid day, it's taken 4 days to get through Costa Rica...a big chunk of time has been swallowed.
The border rats were out In force here, the dude in customs couldn't of been more of a stickler, he made me jump through every hoop he had. I had to book a flight out of Panama, print it out then cancel it...be scrutinised and basically bite the tongue for 3 hours.
A short walk through no mans land had the thumb out for about 2 hours before we jumped in the back of a pick up to the city of David...
Trudged through the suburbs to locate some lodgings...found a place called 'The Purple House'...this place was tinged with a little madness, the plugs were purple, the tea towels were purple...everything was purple!. Everything was aesthetically hideous! Put the head to kip on a purple pillow... Hopefully the tide will change tomorrow and we can surf a purple patch all the way to Panama City.
