The upside of not escaping Panama has been the chance for more jungle walks.
So join me on my walks and I will share some of the things I have seen.
The monkeys have definitely been one of the highlights, listening to the Howlers howl and the Capuchins chatter.

In the video above you can see several monkeys. The first monkey fearlessly leaped from on tree to the next. The second monkey followed cautiously behind, and then sat and contemplated the other tree.
And then decided on a different way to get across.
Walking through the jungle in a rainstorm is a unique experience. The barometer drops sending the signal that the rain is coming. We take cover under the trees and can hear the raindrops hitting the top of the canopy, but it takes quite a while for the wetness to make it down to the ground. Usually we only get wet when the shower is over and the leaves are drip the water down on us.
Afterwards the air is thick with water droplets and the sun shining through the trees cuts a beautiful path.
