I missed you guys. Really, I did. I’ve been thinking a lot about Panama For Real and wishing I had more time to dive back into the pool of milky white virtual paper and Verdana font. The truth is, I’ve been incredibly busy putting food on the table. I’ve said before that Panama isn’t an […]

I’ve been asked a few times recently about satisfaction among expats in Panama and what seems to drive people to pack up and leave. That’s a tough question to answer because each person has his or her own story. It might be the constant humidity, the slower pace of life, traffic (if they live in Panama […]

Hey everybody, Awhile back, before he actually moved to Panama, an online buddy of mine (we need to get together for a beer soon, Todd) asked in an expat forum, how expats deal with depression. It wasn’t that he was depressed himself (he’s an ex-military guy and moves around a lot), but since he was […]

Hi friends! Well, I asked (via Facebook) after my last Q and A, if people found these useful and it seems that most people do, so I’ll keep doing them, but maybe just spread them out a bit, so not every Monday. Whenever I round up a decent selection of questions and answers, I’ll put […]

Hey everybody, Well, the stay at home gringo is staying at home again. I’m doing freelance work from home, for now, which has given me a lot more time to write. I just finished the first draft of my 2nd book, Mirror Images Book 2: Sons of Man, and hope to release it soon (it needs […]

Hey friends, This is going to be a super short post. Remember, I talk about the good and the bad, so not everything on this blog is rosy. Now, that said, I swear if I’m asked in the supermarket one more time if I have a penny, I might lose it. Okay, not really. It […]

There seem to be mixed emotions over whether or not it’s a good idea to banish the cultural mascots of Panama, the Dibalo Rojo buses. When I say cultural mascots, that’s exactly what they are. These old school buses that have been transformed into speedster taxis, are a standout symbol for Panama. Almost every tourist snaps pictures […]

A couple of posts ago I wrote about getting a driver’s license in Panama, where I posted a ticket for my dysfunctional headlight at the bottom. Well, I’ve done it again. This time it’s a parking ticket. Geez, I don’t know what’s going on. I never got tickets back in the States. I’ll figure it […]
