Another Chiriqui.Life Podcast #08: An Interview with Bonnie Williams, One of the US Wardens for the Boquete Area


Recommended Posts

The owners/administrators of the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website are very pleased to announce the release of its eighth audio podcast in the series that is called "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts". These podcasts are produced by Marcelyn Jandreau and Bud Huber, and basically are conversations with the "movers and shakers" in the Chiriqui highlands area. (Note: Chiriqui.Life Podcasts is a different series from the "Chiriqui.Life Stories" audio podcasts that are produced by Michael Schwartz and also published on CL.)

This audio podcast features Bonnie Williams. Bonnie and her husband Larry moved to Boquete in 2007 based on prior travel experiences in Costa Rica and Panama, coupled with her interest in flowers and animals. Bonnie is originally from Florida, well educated, and a former Executive Director of the Florida Commission on Ethics. Today, besides being a Boqueteña, she is one of the two Boquete area Wardens for the US Embassy (Hank Landis is the other Warden). Bonnie has extensive knowledge about expatriation issues based on her personal experiences as well as her role as a Warden; she shares some of the more important factors for those considering expatriation to Panama in general, and Chiriqui Province in particular. She also mentions a few helpful processes for US citizens, such as how to renew a passport without making a trip to PC, etc. Bonnie is involved with and supportive of several Boquete area charitable groups, and was a five-year director of Bid 4 Boquete, a now defunct but very successful umbrella civic/charitable organization.

Podcasts are premium content on CL, which means that you need to be a registered member of CL and logged in. Membership on CL is free, so if you are not already a member, then register and listen to Bonnie tell her story.
