After a great last night with friends in São Paulo, time to say 'good bye' had finally come.
Early morning next day, January 15, departure from GRU Airport to start what I have been planning for the past month. And being all excited for flight CM700 to Panamá City, I completely forgot to notify Copa Airlines that my 9'0 surfboard would travel along with me. 'Luckily', only 2 out of 3 surfboard spots in the plane were reserved upfront and Copa Airlines made an exception for Waved to have mine as lucky Number 3.
With movies such as 'Due Date' which I haven´t watched in quite some time, the six hours flight was over in no time and there I was, walking out of the airport in Panamá City where Luis, a friend of Silvia and Pedro (hosts of Waveds´Panamanian base camp) was waiting in order to drive me to Panama City´s main bus station. Concluding the 5 hours bus ride which by the way was accompanied by Nena and her 99 Luftballons, I finally arrvied at my destination! Llegamos a Panamá!
