Love, Death, and Protein in Panama

Musuco counterman, Panama City

Perhaps I am a little too passionate about ceviche.

In 2012, I traveled to Panama for a closer look at the artisanal procurement of corvina, a fish popular throughout the country. I ended up meeting with a chilly two-step, a murky aphrodisiac, and a phantom hat. And a man who cheerfully doubles as a boat wife.

The resulting tale, Love, Death and Protein in Panama, appears over at On A Junket, edited by the same folks who brought you Adventures of the Traveling Sex Bunnies.
