Saturday afternoon in Ancon

Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more;
or have nothing to study!

Another four months in Panama for me started this week. I must admit, it was a lot more exciting going to Illinois and Massachusetts, but that's probably because Panama isn't new anymore. The same problems and the same joys are still here, and not much has changed. Well, other than me. I have a better idea of what I'm doing, and more confidence with which to do it. That doesn't mean that I'm not as procrastinate-y as ever, but it does mean that I have some definite goals while I'm here.

By the time I finish this stint (I'm here until December) I will have spent over a year here in the tropics. A part of this trip is to have "big things" to show for my time here. Otherwise, why bother being here? It's not like I really enjoy spending long periods of time away from home. And I have been at this degree for two years now. I really ought to have something concrete to show for it soon. Other than an intestinal parasite and a taste for Abuelo. *

Time to go do.

* No, I do not have an intestinal parasite. Yet.
Abuelo, however, is a perfectly acceptable thing to bring home.
