i got stung by this scorpion in the middle of the night.

While sleeping I was rudely woken up by a sharp pain in  my leg. i knew at once that i was either stung or bit by something but i was not sure which one. i jumped out of bed and ran to the bathroom to get a look at my leg. i was praying for only one hole rather than two since normally one means stinger and two means fangs. when i looked down i only saw one hole and for a moment i was relieved followed quickly by pain. after a while the pain subsided with ice and luckily i had no reaction to the sting. so we checked the bed and found the colporate... a little scorpion. we caught it was a cup and killed it with water. i had a hard time falling back to sleep after that but i eventually did and slept quite well considering.

the next morning we got up early to head down to the beach for a few hours in the sun. it was a perfect day and the water felt great! after the beach we cleaned up and headed into town. we didn't have long but Sheryl drove around and showed us some amazing views of panama city and a bit of the area. after that we headed to the air port to catch our flight to bocas del toro.
