now doing some overhauls and 3rd fab we are headng for cienfuegos
through the jardines de la reina……the bikes are imported and
allready on the road cruising cuba and we are enjoying santiago.
we are anchored close by tuwala island in san blas in the deep darien
where once th scottish people founded their only ever existing colony in
1700 we can not visit the village tuwala as the kuna poeple have a very
important religious ceremony going on there: the chiefs on the island
smoke their peace-pipe and therefore no visitors are allowed for a
couple of days and it s not possible even to come close and to make any
kind of noise.
today we will visit scottish harbour/new edinburgh a 3 miles from here
and spend the est of the day there and in the night heading back to
carti in a overnight sail.
