Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Last night I finally got to see Vicky Cristina Barcelona. An interesting storey of love and passion. And I really enjoyed it! There were so many beautiful scenes in the movie it made me wanna go to Spain again! Sipping wine and having a lovely lunch outside in the shade! Bike rides down to picnic spots. Taking pictures in the Gothic area...Le sigh...Also loved the music! Very pretty. The light and airy costumes worked so well for the movie.

I was reminded when I went backpacking through Europe in 2005. Sheesh it's really been that long. One of my favorite things I remember about Barcelona was the amazing falafel place (called Maos?). Good lord...I'd go back just for that!

tandem adventure!

Hilarious tandem ride with 4 good friends on the Causeway a couple weekends ago. At first it was just lovely! Then it started pouring rain and we all got soaked! It was probably the funniest thing to see us screaming and giggling through a rainstorm on this thing. It was def a fun afternoon ride and pretty hard work!

good morning!

Well so tonight we are going to check out Casco Viejo and go to an special artist event at a lovely store called Galleria Vida (which I'll blog about latter).

my bag

Remember when I posted about this bag? I said I liked it and was inspired??? Well whatever...I made my own bag shortly after using my telephone wire techniques and remnants of boardshort fabric from work at OP. I think it's cute if I say so myself...only thing I'd change would be to make the handles much bigger.

El Valle & beach at night

Last weekend I went to El Valle de Anton with some friends (2 of them friends visiting from California) for the day. It's only a couple hours from the city but it's so pretty and green.

First stop was the walk to see the Piedra Pintada or painted rock or petroglyph

the rock markings are supposed to be a map I think...it was sooo cool under the trees

a little farther up the path was this lovely little waterfall just begging me to take a dip...unfortunately I'd left the swim suit in the car. Gar.

I did dip my feet and later had a yummy fish with rice with beans and noodle salad for lunch!

Hippies outside the hot springs selling nifty rompe cabezas or puzzle games out of things found from nature. The one picture in his hand is a little turtle made from gourd with plastic representing/reminding us not to throw away garbage especially on the beach (turtles mistake them for jelly fish and often die). Anyway the Aguas Termales or hot springs is highly recommended! Costs $1 and includes mud mask! So relaxing. I think a nap afterward is required.

Despite being pretty tired I was able to go to the beach that night with some crazy friends I have here. Very typical Panamanian style of smooshing 8 people into the car. Despite being eaten alive by bugs it was a lovely night. Especially swimming in the water. Unfortunately it was cloudy so nope no star gazing. I think it was around 4:30 am when we finally left. Yes, those are my feet warming up by the fire! Only thing missing were s'more fixin's'!

After a few weeks of lazyness I finally went jogging again last night after work. It was breezy and I could smell jasmine. Reminded me of Hawaii. Note to self: be less lazy.

BAG Project

So a few months back my professor, Ann Savageau from UC Davis contacted me about a great project she is doing. The BAG (Bags Across the Globe) project is an international exchange of recycled tote bags as a way to send a message about reducing the use of plastic shopping bags. The "BAG is more about an exchange of energy and information than about an exchange of objects: the bags serve/function as messengers/vehicles for this exchange. It will encourage other people to take up this effort and create their own bags out of local waste materials, and to share them with others. " After waiting 3 months for the bags to arrive in the mail I finally got to see the lovely works of art they are! One bag was made from a recyled banner and the other was made from recycled interior design samples and feature recycled tags. See more info here. She sent me two so that I could give one away to another friend! I gave on to another designer from Colombia and told her about the project. I'm also going to give the one I was going to keep for myself to my coworker since she liked it so much and I already have so many tote bags at home. Though I must admit I'm having second thoughts! But if I can spread the message I suppose it's worth the loss!

A college girl friend from UCD happens to be here visiting me so I took to her on a walking tour of
Avenida Central, a busy main street here in PTY for great cheap bargains and street food (such as aqua de pipa or coconut water and momon chino or rambutan). Then we wondered all the way to Casco Viejo for some more strolling in and out of cute shops and taking lots of pictures which I will post about another time.
