  1. Really sad to read this. Such a loss. Who leads BCP now?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?!.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Your questions are reasonable and logical, but it suggests that you are planning to move to Boquete without having done your homework. Maybe I am interpreting your questions incorrectly. My recommendation and response to your questions is that you first should go to Boquete and scope things out for yourself. Plan to spend at least a month, or possibly two or three before making such a huge decision - unless you have tons of money to burn. But if that were the case then you wouldn't be asking the banking questions that you ask. Everyone has their own opinion and own experiences and own goa
  9. In some ways it sounds like she is apologizing for something she has done in the past, but not making any changes in whatever it was that she did. What is the real story here?
  10. Opinion here -- corruption is in all governments, but it seems to me Latin cultures have an extra dose or two of it. And it is accepted as just part of the way things work. And the court systems are corrupt also. Just look at Martinelli.
  11. Perhaps a better question would be: Do decision makers read?
