"Where good ideas come from" by Steven Johnson

This is so cool... visually and mentally stimulating. I'm ALWAYS thinking about something and coming up with creative ideas, but a lot of times (and I know u can relate), I don't feel like I have enough of an idea to actually put it into action so I get stuck.  Thanks for sending me this Craig :) ... perfect timing too lol. Check it out guys..

Get Inspired! - Change the world [Repost]

I posted this video a while back but I wanted to put it back up because this is the exact spirit I'm feeling today. I'm inspired to do something bigger... something greater than I've done already. My mind has been racing and this is one of the first videos that popped in my head when I thought of how I could express and share this feeling. Check it out... I hope you get a little spark of inspiration from this too :)

El último día de nuestro viaje

The last day of our trip, we decided to take the day to shop for souvenirs.  It was Good Friday, so most of the stores were closed. Before we left the house, we decided to have a mini photoshoot while we waited for Jess. These were the best shots lol

The skyline on the way to The Causeway
Feel free to use these as your desktop backgrounds lol

After we found the souvenir shops, we were on our way back home and saw a Kuna Indian selling beaded jewelry
While she was tying on my anklet, her cell phone rang. We were all shocked, because we thought they were the indigenous people of the land that only lived naturally. 
I got a pic of her on a call too lol
Hard at work
Two more of her girls rolled up in a cab lol. They came to sell the same kind of jewelry
So nice for this to be your office everyday
They sold handcrafted earrings too
y molas

After shopping, we took a trip over to Jess, April, and Zoila's Tio Ornano's house... On the way there, we saw this construction. They're building a museum.. the roof looks cool already.
Tio Ornano telling a story
 This drink was bangin... I think it was maracuya
 Found another mini super lol

Chillin en la casa

We spent the whole week driving all over Panama so we decided to take this day to just chill in the house.  It was a nice, quiet and fun day :)

My first reaction, after breakfast, was to grab a book and the hammock and read outside. 
My quick appreciation for nature lol

I'm gonna miss this weather. 
Zoila was spying on me from the living room. She calls it "Cocoon" , but I call it "Paparazzi"
This was Jess's cocoon
Scared 'er lol
The most relaxing day I've had in a while :)
THEN, we decided to BBQ! - We prepared burgers, hot dogs, chicken, corn, and beans
Here goes the beans
The craziest thing happened to this hot dog lol
We put it on the grill, closed the hood and it exploded after a few minutes.. smh
Look at it.. its hollow
I decided to cut mine up so it wouldn't have the same fate, but the hot dog had this edible clear wrapping around it that was really ruining our plans. I even tried to spruce it up with some BBQ sauce but the thin wrapping made it so chewy

The lizard looks a little camouflage  but these little things were showing up everywhere throughout our trip. They're no harm tho.. they just show up on the walls and eat the bugs
Meanwhile... back in the house...
Zoila and April came back with a few of their primos, Roberto, Tito, and Troy.

I thought this was amusing the first day we were here but kept forgetting to get a picture of it. Zucaritas is the spanish Frosted Flakes. Look at how much stronger Tony the Tiger looks on their box lol 

OOOHHH look what I saw outside!
It was like some kind of monster guinea pig.
And with all the heat, I still managed to enjoy a nice cup of tea :) lol

A la playa!

We decided to go to the beach to chill and get some more color. It took us extra long to get there because we just couldn't seem to find the right entrance to the beach but it was well worth the wait when we got there. The beach was gorgeous! 
 The ride was over an hour but it didn't seem like it because the scenery was so nice
This is what we saw when we pulled up.... I was sooo happy :)
 Jess and Zoila

 Idk why I didn't get a pic of the bottle but April had this cinnamon and olive oil mixture that helped us tan evenly. I don't think I'll ever lay out in the sun without it anymore. The cinnamon granules mixed with the olive oil made my skin feel so soft and smooth. Ya'll should try it.
 Old school Pepsi....  la vida
 Little chill spots on la playa, in case you want to get some shade. There was also a little restaurant back there.
Afternoon snack :) ... Mango and a Crush orange soda
This guy, named Apu, was going around selling hand-made bracelets, necklaces, and anklets. He has a cool story.... He's a Mexican guy, making a living selling this hand-made jewelry and has no idea how long he's been in Panama.... but he'll be making his way over to Argentina soon when he's able to. That's gotta be the life. He just lives :)

This dog seemed to be a wanderer too.. walkin around like he owned the place, getting too close sometimes. He was cute tho lol
 "The edge", by Zoila Brown lol
Jess and her Panamanian earrings lol

This was nasty too... we saw a dead blowfish under a tree 
 I had to get a pic of this store because we've been seeing "mini supers" everywhere. Isn't that an oxymoron?? ....... Mini super antonio.... Mini super fernando..... they got one for everybody lol
