Just hearsay from people we met last year in the Caribbean. Venezuela is very difficult and often very dangerous but it is incredibly cheap. We heard about diesel that was something like 2 cents a liter. People are very friendly but there is a lot of crime. Colombia is getting better than it has been but not altogether safe. Panama coast (eastern San Blas) apparently is fine - not cheap or expensive, there is almost nothing available to buy in the markets.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
