koby bar mitzvahAdios Los Angeles, Hola Panama! (from our latest news)

Being in Los Angeles for our family event (Koby’s Bar Mitzvah) was wonderful. We were fortunate to spend time with our relatives and share in a special celebration. We also saw many friends and had a fantastic live event at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel. We appreciate your participation in Oahu at Lotus Honolulu and in Los Angeles at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel and online for our webinar about Exotic Burma for our Festival of the Pacific! We will share videos of all events as soon as they are available.

We have NEW VIDEOS to share! Please enjoy: our video book trailer of Traveling in Sin,our first night in Palau (Mingles So Thai), Palau Government House  with Hula Hooping, Palau Jungle River CruisePalau Museums,and Baby Poi in Thailand. We will share our stories from this summer as the articles get published.

We are currently in Panama. People always ask us about our luggage or what is in our backpacks. When we checked in for our flight from Los Angeles to Panama City we had 19.4 kilos. (Math problem: 1 kilogram is 2.2 pounds.  8.4 for George and 11 for me, or 42.7 pounds for both of us.)

Our visit to the Panama Canal and Casco Antiguo (see George’s photo below) was history come alive. We hiked in Santa Fe (photo below, got eaten by chitras) and enjoyed the festival De Patria on Nov 3 in Boquete.  I think that the best thing about travel is to be able to understand what is going on and how it relates to your life and the lives of local people. George and I feel so fortunate to be able to continue our travels and grow our website. Thank you so much for your support!
