Cerro Punta Day 2
Ok, by far, one of my favorite pictures!!!!
We came back from our walk and went up to the Spa for our massages (they were a part of the package). Remember, we had walked up here the day before and all was well.This particular morning, a mere 18 hours later, this is what we saw...
Me: Jen, I think the spa burned up!
Jen: (Looking around) Abby, are we in the right place? This has to be a joke!
No, it was not a joke. It has burned during the night and we heard nothing - no sirens, no shouting, no hearing of the flames or smelling smoke. We went down the receptionist desk and our masseuses were waiting for us and totally tranquila about the whole situation. Hilarious! Apparently it was being investigated, but it was believed to be an electrical fire.
Finally, the trails! Jen pointing the way to our trail.
This is after dinner which has a fun story! We went back to the hotel restaurant for dinner. I was craving salad (a good salad is not always easy to find in Panama). So there was a chicken caesar salad on the menu, so that was my choice. During this discussion of what to order, Jen mentions that she would love a job editing English translations of menus and such. And I say, "Like this description of the caesar salad. Look, it says with anchovy dressing."
How little did I realize it was a literal translation. It tasted like tartar sauce with whole anchovy fillets on the salad. It did not work out so fabulously. I ate mostly the chicken. Such a disappointment. Note to self, when it says "anchovy sauce" take it literally!
Lots of fun memories! Thus ended day 2
