The kitchen and dining room of La Casona, one of our temporary homes at Eco Venao. This place is definitely built for entertaining.
The living room of La Casona, one of our temporary homes at Eco Venao. As you can imagine, we got pretty comfortable here. A couch! The first one of our trip.
This was our haul after less than two hours of a thanksgiving beach cleanup that Sachi and I did at Playa Venao.
The front porch of La Casona, our first home at Eco Venao. It´s fair to say that this address was far fancier than what we´ve grown accustomed to, but we were not heard complaining.

We were fortunate enough to spend nearly two months on the coast of Panama in the Azuero region. For most of that time we called Eco Venao home, bouncing around between the various vacancies they had. One day we´d be camping in our tent and the next we´d find ourselves upgraded to one of their very nice houses.
Sachi is old friends with the owner and he generously hosted us while Sachi worked on an edit of an ongoing documentary film project.
Birds of paradise were Sachi´s mom´s favorite flower, and it´s always a treat to have them part of our daily landscape.
Another shot of the Achotines Lab´s yellowfin tanks at feeding time.
A closer look at the Achotines yellowfin at feeding time. These fish do not end up on a plate- they´re strictly raised for research.
The Achotines Lab on Panama´s Azuero Penninsula is one fascinating place, and one of the only places in the world where yellowfin tuna are spawned and reared in captivity. We´re suckers for innovative aquaculture, so we took a closer look.
