Boquete is not immune from the viruses and flu bugs running around the world and I am not immune to them, either. For the past week many of us, including myself, have been stricken with a deep, painful chest cold. Boring, I know. But it gives me a little down time to write.
Today I want to introduce you to two of the newest hoteliers in town, Terry and Manzar. As a team, these former-Minneapolitans (whew!) migrated to our little burg to fulfill a lifelong dream of theirs: to build and operate a luxurious bed and breakfast. So they made trip after trip down here, found a plot of land close to town and began building. I’m not going to tell you their whole story, as you can read it for yourself on their own web site, but they’ve given the enterprise the lovely name of Casa de Montaña.
John and I have become good friends with “the boys” and I’ve been documenting their building progress. In addition, we are lucky enough to be included in some of their social get togethers. They had their first potluck recently and I snapped a few photos from that event and I hope to grab a few shots this week as we head over there for Thanksgiving. Construction photos are first followed by the “afters” taken at their recent potluck.
Okay, here are the “after” shots, taken at the recent potluck. I took them with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet, so I’m not real good yet with its camera technology:
If you’ve got family coming for the holidays, or if you’re planning a trip to Boquete and want the experience of a lovely “home living” arrangement, Casa de Montañas B & B is a great choice!
