The Dry, The Dirty and The Beautiful

In Panama, we only have two seasons, Wet or Dry or as they call it here; Invierno o Verano.  The wind is blowing from the North, it’s Dry Season. With the wind comes a fine coating of dust that coats everything, making it almost impossible to stay ahead of the cleaning.

In December after the hardest rains comes the shifting of winds and the breezes of Dry Season again…in the campo.
