The tale of two seasons

Panama has two seasons. Winter and Summer. It’s always 90 degrees Fahrenheit, but from the middle of may to the middle of December it is tropically rainy. It is green and growing, and rains enough to grow rice in the mountains. And one day the rain stops. And not another drop for 6 months. It turns very dry and resembles late summer in the mountain west plains.  

 It’s a grand feeling when the rains return, and equally as welcome when they go away again.  

 What’s really remarkable is the wild fruit, the mango, marañon,guava, and more start to bear fruit at the end of the dry season. Very hardy trees. I love this place!
