AK-Panama blog now open to all!

To celebrate our year anniversary in Panama we have decided to celebrate by opening up the blog to free access to all. You will no longer need a password…and you can tell others to visit the blog without complications. Just go to:

and you should get right in without being asked for a password.

We originally password protected it to be able to be more free with what we could write and to protect it from spammers. We have found in the majority of cases we write what we want and it is not sensitive enough to warrant password protection. Yes, there are some issues that we want to write about that could deserve password protection when posted. However those are issues that after thinking long and hard about how to write about them I end up stuck on the how to say it all…so I will keep mulling it over and see where we end up.

Please feel free to share the blog site with family, friends, co-workers and strangers alike. We are still writing to connect with family and friends...but every person we reach is a sucess for our Peace Corps goals. Thanks for sharing this adventure with us. Also, keep the questions and comments coming....it helps us to know what we need to write about next!

It's awesome that you are opening up the blog! I can add you to my feed reader now. I hadn't looked at your posts in a while...you know, out of sight, out of mind.

I hope you have been well!

Thanks for spending time writing your journey. This is the first time I read a blog page and it's great to learn so much about what you and April have done since you left. Looks like you are way too happy there. Don’t forget your way back :=). ND
