  1. An impressive doctor. His depth of knowledge and presentation skills are to be admired. Completely changed my thoughts about marijuana. Thanks for posting this.
  2. I chuckle at emails and postings like this. No where does the person who sent this advertisement tell the public about themselves. What is their name? What are their credentials? How many years of experience do they have? Etc. Etc. Etc. That absentmindedness tells me to avoid this service provider.
  3. I’ve been to Japan and one of my first impressions was that in general the Japanese people are smaller than Americans. Not only in girth but also height. This thing looks huge next to Americans so think about how much bigger it would be on a smaller Japanese bride. Wow. A huge amount of work went into making this garment.
  4. I am stunned and majorly disappointed that Newsboquete would distribute such an announcement. Yes, I do care about the children. This announcement is basically inviting all of the Newsboquete readers to participate in a public protest. When I got my residency I was warned not to get involved in Panamanian politics because it can lead to losing residency status and being deported. Protest if you wish, but just know that you are placing at risk your status here in your guest country.
  5. Found this information on Google. Kinda interesting and lots of pictures from the past. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Panama+Border+Crossing/@9.4984345,-82.6133439,3a,75y/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipPUvWf4qHDhEOfXkHU43usWQOXdFbFhx5qZRZtC!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPUvWf4qHDhEOfXkHU43usWQOXdFbFhx5qZRZtC%3Dw203-h148-k-no!7i3970!8i2901!4m7!3m6!1s0x8fa641b04d6dd805:0x5255ec450412b707!8m2!3d9.4984345!4d-82.6133439!14m1!1BCgIgAQ
  6. Really sad to read this. Such a loss. Who leads BCP now?
  7. Really interesting information. I had no idea that these ladies gather together and volunteer their time and resources to help support the needy in our community. I salute you. Thank you for posting this information.
  8. I have heard about the Handicap Foundation but knew little of it. Glad that you posted this. Lots of good information, and the pictures brought it home. This is important stuff for the Boquete community. Thanks to the three ladies who did the interview, but not just for doing the interview. Also for the volunteer work they do and have done for years.
  9. I know they probably mean well, but the people planning and executing (and naming) these open markets are making a huge mistake. They seem to be trying to leverage the reputation of the Tuesday Markets that BCP organized and managed for years. Why don't they grow up and quit trying to confuse people. Name it something like Tapout Market or Rotary Market or some such?!.
  10. Routine supplies for some of my hobbies are hard to get now and in some cases simply not available. I agree with the comments here. Blaming something or someone won’t help, but it might make me feel better for a few minutes. I now truly understand the meaning of the word frustration. Mention above of Amazon now brings up bad thoughts. Some vendors are gouging. If Amazon were a local store it would be called being gringo-ed.
  11. Above taken from the referenced CDC website. Sounds like the viral test is one travelers should seek first. A friend told me that there soon will be a third kind of test - called a t-cell test. Does anyone have any info about that new test?
  12. The courier service I use has never opened any of my incoming shipments. Friends tell me that some couriers routinely open everything. Is the issue here in this article about following government procedures, security/safety (e.g., shipping of certain kinds of batteries, etc.) or MONEY? Will be interesting to see what changes come out of this effort.
