  8. There appears to be bridge construction in Bajo Boquete on via Boquete over the Quebrada (rio) Bajo Grande on the right when coming into town just before Sugar and Spice. It looks as though they're constructing a new bridge span adjacent to the existing bridge. That small building that occupied that location, a restaurant and a car wash, is gone. Are they adding a travel lane or is this going to be for pedestrians?

  11. I tend to admire youth groups such as One Youth Ambassadors, Volunteer Services Overseas, Global Citizen, and many others who have organized together to fight world poverty and promote human dignity. Even smaller organizations like Never Again (founded by the Parkland shooting survivors) seem to me to promise more hope for the future then religious pilgrimages of this sort. But I'm the first to agree that it's satisfying to see youth engaged in something other than their cell phones!
  12. My kind of healthy. Lettuce on the salami, ham, bacon, and provolone sandwich that I'll be seeking. Maybe with fries. 😊
  13. Did you happen to learn what days and hours she is open? This looks like a great place for healthy take-out.
  14. I wish I had posted this earlier. White taking our housekeeper into town last Thursday afternoon about 4:00PM, I had to come to a complete stop on the road just below the castle (we live in the El Santuario area) because of a large group of young persons walking up the hill into our residential area. Have no idea where they were destined as there are no churches, restaurants, or venues of significant interest (to the best of my knowledge). Perhaps someone was having a reception for the group at their home??? The lead people in this processional were carrying a fairly large wooden cross. I saw no adults; the majority of the group, estimated to number about 150 to 175, were probably mid-teens to very early 20s. They were smiling, some carrying cell phones and a few had cameras, but none of them were talking or texting while in this processional (that was a refreshing thing to see so many young people NOT consumed by their electronics). I waved to several of them, and got smiles and waves in return. Rosmery (our housekeeper) immediately recognized the group as "peregrinos" (pilgrims). I wish I had had my camera so that you could see this group. All well groomed, smiling, and enthusiastically involved. (I believe there is hope for the future.)
  15. Just returned from a few days in the City where preparations are really ramping up for this youth festival and young pilgrims are arriving daily in droves. Tourism is really getting a boost in that other people from neighbouring countries are coming in on special Papal tours and filling hotels. The whole thing seems to be quite well organized. I even received a JMJ memorial $1 coin yesterday.
  16. Mike’s Art Shop. This store is located at Calle 4a Sur, Bajo Boquete, in space previously occupied by Charlie’s Pet Fashion (listed on Maggie’s List of Animal Resources posted on Chiriqui Life).
