Yesterday evening we came in to the harbour of Papete and docked to land for the first time since Panama.
We made the passage of 280nM in 36 hours, that means almost 8knots in average wich is very fast for us.
The passage was ok, we had half wind, but since we made such speed we ended up having the apparent wind on the nose.
As it was very gusty it was hard to relax. But since the trip was short it was OK.
Guess if the kids wanted to get ashore as fast as possible. The marina we are at is in the middle of town. With traffic and everything.
The amount of sounds, happenings and smells is almost too much when you have been away from a city since April.
