Bahia Honda, Panama
Domingo and his son-in-law, Edwin, along with grandson, Edwin Junior, were already in their panga heading out to greet us with bananas, pineapples and coconuts as we entered the eponymously labeled Domingo anchorage. Sailors, blogs and forum entries extol Domingo‘s hospitality in this remote jungle anchorage, however Domingo and his family would out-welcome even the most glowing reports over the next two days.
We shared visits, guided monkey tours, homework assignments, breakfasts and an amazing dinner with Domingo’s extended family. We sang together, danced together, ate together, shared dreams and troubles, cared and connected. Google translate served us well, capturing an amazing amount of Domingo‘s quick-fire Spanish. We traded supplies for fresh fruit, bought handicrafts and enjoyed every minute of our time together.
For Domingo always: mi barco es su barco (my boat is your boat).
