Ngäbe-Buglé Comarca, Tole, Panama

I spent the day with these fine people. Very friendly, polite, welcoming and willing to share history. We ate their food and appreciated their customs. My two friends teach on the Comarca. They get 1.5 days off a week from their teaching jobs. They travel to the Comarca on Sunday afternoons and return home late Friday afernoon. They have to bus to their work and then ride a 4x4 truck up the mountains. There is running water and a small amount of electricity. Omar torrijos' son gave them small solar panels for their communal buildings and their tourist stores. Their casa's walls are made of mud and sticks. The roofs are fiberglass (modern for them). The government built them some nice one room shacks but they don't seem to want to live in them. School was out and we spent the day with one family. A great day. There are 500 kids and 25 teachers. That's not a bad ratio. This is a good life experience in Panama. Beats watching TV, banging on this computer or worrying about my neighbors business.

Hil,

Fantastic. Your "re-work" of this blog posting looks much better than the original. Thanks for the effort. I'm confident others will also appreciate your contributions here.
