A friend of mine who owns a sizeable coffee plantation located at some of the highest areas of Central Panama asked me: “On my land I have several creeks and lots of water, I was wondering if we could make a lake there?” My usual reply to such questions is: “Let’s find out, when do we start?”
Here are some of the more interesting bugs I come across in my daily activities. Of some I know names, for others I invented them. Since not every critter was willing to pose, the quality of the pictures varies. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy them!

Over the weeks that followed, I met and talked to a surprising amount of artists from the area, and I decided to turn it into a surprise party. So I organized an art café on the day of Yani’s 30th birthday, and invited everyone who did anything artistic, not just painters and sculptures but also graphic design and embroidery. Unfortunately, Yani got sick shortly before the event and had to return to France. This is the flyer I made for a birthday that never happened:

Recently I volunteered through a website called workaway.info , where you can find all kinds of projects to join in exchange for a place to stay and a fulfilling experience like the one below:
