I played this for Nena on youtube and she enjoyed it thoroughly.  The audio was a bit difficult with all the background chatter.  She was upset when the chavetas were discussed; she remembers the finca workers getting paid with money that was only good at the finca for buying goods.  She did say the chavetas could be exchanged for actual money if there was any left after buying food; often there was not.

We bought the book when it was first printed, still have it.

Boquete: Valley of the Eternal Rainbow  was an excellent book for new-comers a/o folks interested in the area who do not speak Spanish. 

Her greatest and carefully detailed historical work on the history of Boquete is her book: Boquete, Rasgos de su Historia.

I looked all over and could not find my copy.  I may have loaned it and it never returned.  I could not find a place to buy another.  Anybody know where i could buy another copy?  I really want to replace that book.
