Radio silence

I have to apologize in advance, I hopped a flight to Panama City leaving my blog and my very few, very dear readers behind.  Not quite sure what the internet connection will be from place to place, I am trying my darnedest to keep up with my food explorations.  The good news is, however, that I am also sampling the local fare, for which, quite frankly, I cannot offer any apologies.

Today my traveling partner and supportive friend, Laura, watched as I got a little camera happy when our ceviche arrived.  We ordered the ceviche camarones (shrimp), landing on our table in an oversized martini glass with a bed of lettuce and plantain chips.  Unlike any ceviche I've ever had, this one was creamy and mixed with corn, shredded cabbage, and chopped onions.  With a hint of lime and a spicyness that I couldn't quite pinpoint, I was surprised and pleased by the zesty, creative blend of flavors.

Tomorrow, we leave Panama City for Bocas del Toro, a series of islands on the Caribbean near the Costa Rican border. In other words, paradise.  I promise to eat up for you all while I'm there and be back soon with the latest dish (pun intended).
