The Measure of a Year

"The charts call this archipelago the San Blas Islands, but the Kuna, who remain culturally apart from Panama, call it Kuna Yala, the Kuna Nation. Over the next three months, we lived among the Kuna, anchoring inside the reefs in lagoons of liquid turquoise, behind little cays packed with palms and fringed with blinding white beach. When we swam, spotted eagle rays soared alongside, and nurse sharks slept below under coral ledges. We feasted nightly on freshly caught fish, lobster and giant crabs."
