Ladybear. Greetings from Mt Shasta, California! i was surfing
around the other night looking for an old message board i saw a couple of years ago about
life in Panajachel. I then came upon your site.
I just wanted you to know i gave you a link from my travel page and wanted to invite you
to visit my site when you have some time.
I lived at the Juyacan Bungalows in '85 and was at the lake in '75 also. I miss it alot
and hope to get back one of these days.
Chris Le Beau. I don't know if you remember me but I was
living in Pana off and on from '89 'til '93. I was a friend of Willow and knew a bunch of
people there. I have talked with Ivan via e-mail since and would like to have you add my
address to your roster. It's email@example.com.
I really enjoy reading about the goings-on there and look forward to the time when I will
be able to spend some time rockin' til early morning hours and enjoying the special
environment of the Lago. I've been on Kauai since August of last year and am attending
school full time. I plan on transferring to University of Hawaii at Manoa on Oahu to get
my four year degree in Psych. and if all goes well plan to attend their Masters and PhD.
programs in Clinical Psychology and a minor in Journalism. Thanks. Anything I can do in
this part of the world for anyone there contact me. If I can I will and if I can't I'll
say so. Peace, Chris
