Bocas Del Toro, meaning the "mouth of the bull" which makes SO much sense for this beautiful collection of islands. It is soooo mouthy like...Well, here we are folks. The last stop on the olĀ“irresponsibility train. The last stamp in the passport. Bocas was an unbelievably beautiful first stop in Panama, turquiose waters surrounding a large group of islands, many not inhabited by anyone.  We stayed on Isla Colon and had quite the grand old time trapsing through the jungle in the rain, splashing in the waves, drinking way too many tequila shots...I also had the unfortunate luck to land in the very inadequately equipt hospital after having an allergic reaction.  After 5 long painful swollen hours, 2 doctors, countless rude nurses, 2 medications, and an injection, i was finally home free and only $5 poorer. 

After having to listen to a boy who looked like a member of Blink182 describe his quest to "become a man" and a very unfortunate event concerning a cow, we decided it was time to mosey onto our next stop. We got on the next boat the mainland, then booked it to a small misty cool mountain town called Boquete, which I think ill remember for its exceedingly friendly people and a really terrible sandwich i just consumed. ick.
