Another visitor aboard Pitufa

We finished all our electronics projects in time before my father arrived last Tuesday. Since then we’ve been doing touristy things (sightseeing in the casco viejo, strolling through town)–nice after two weeks of constant work. Unfortunately the sea is very murky at the moment, lots of tiny creatures are around, sometimes bright red clouds drift through, at night they fluoresce spectacularly like bright turquoise fireworks in the wake of the dinghy (a phenomenon called “red tide” that occurs from time to time here), so swimming’s not really possible. We took the boat over to the island of Tobago hoping for clear water there, but it was just the same. We only used a patch of clear water on the way back to Panama city to have a quick swim, quite funny with all the big ships anchored around, waiting for the Panama Canal.
