Chiriqui.Life Podcast #07: An Interview with Dan Porter of Twin Wolf Technology


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

This is the seventh in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is Dan Porter of Twin Wolf Technology Group. He describes himself as a country boy who found his passions to be (a) computers, and (b) casino gaming and poker. Dan first came to Panama City in 2009 under a contract to bring American-style casino gaming (especially poker) to Panama. He arrived with his wife of 35 years for the multi-year contract. Upon completion of that contract, he found that he liked Panama so much that he decided to stay, but in the Chiriqui highlands. However, his wife did not share the same enthusiasm for Panama, leading to what is described as the world's most amicable divorce on record. Dan continues his two passions, and supports computer clients in various countries using remote technology. He then met and married his second wife, Clara, who is Colombiana. That marriage began a long series of issues with immigration status in Panama, with the result that Dan and Clara are relocating to Colombia. Dan goes into some detail about his experiences with immigration in both Panama and Colombia, as well as Panamanian culture.

Thank you!

Thanks to Bud and Marcelyn for providing the podcast format, and thanks to Dan for taking the time to do it.

The view of the changes occurring with each administration change should be required reading (listening) for anyone considering being an expat in Panama. One point I would offer is that much of the difficulty in getting anything done is related to the ability to communicate. Arguing in Panamanian can produce results. "Si pero" is one of the most often heard phases in Panama. 

One of the reasons that Panama is afloat with lawyers is the plethora of executive decrees that follow every election.  As the last 6 elections have shown, the political party changes with each election so the winner takes it upon himself to undo the work of the previous occupant of the Palace.

Good luck to Dan in Colombia.
