Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2014 already, the year President Martinelli plans to finish up everything? Seriously, living in Panama, it seems the answer to every challenge and every new project is, “It will be completed in 2014.” So hopefully this year means an end to our traffic woes (with the new Metro […]

Hey everybody, Sorry it’s been awhile since my last post. I took a little bit of time off to spend with the family over the holidays. I’m back now and excited to start the New Year off right. This will be a short, and very quickly written post, as I’m about to head out with […]

Wow, has it really been a month since I last wrote? Sorry it has taken so long. I used to be better at pumping out posts. I need to get back on my game. With this post, and I know I’m a little bit late, I thought I’d bring up the subject of Kids’ Day […]

I’m writing this on the Monday following Thanksgiving, so this isn’t a “What to do for Thanksgiving” post, but more about how Panamanians I know have begun to embrace our holiday, and some have even made it their own. This year, prior to the holiday, Panamanian friends and family of mine started calling my mother-in-law, […]

My kids at Multiplaza Mall for Halloween. As I mentioned in my last article about Halloween, the only place to take your kids for trick or treating here, is Mulitplaza Mall. Multiplaza doesn’t do a very good job of advertising though. At Google, I searched for Multiplaza and Halloween to find out what day and time […]

Wow, it’s been awhile. I mentioned in my last post that I was having some back issues. They just continued to get worse, keeping me off my feet for a few weeks. I didn’t even want to try to sit at the computer. Basically, an old military injury, three herniated discs (along with other back […]
