  1. Lots of Boqueteños don't know that a major tourist attraction takes place twice a day at CEFATI (The tourist center) at the intersection of the David Highway and the Volcancito Road. Every day about 4 Camille Gathercoite takes dog kibble and compost from a local restaurant up to CEFATI. The coati families that live in the ravine know the sound of her car and come running up out of the ravine. Here's some photos:
  2. I don't read the notice as saying we can get our packages that were en-route to CVT at the new facility in David. In fact, I've heard that the owner of Senderos Plaza is holding the packages because CVT never paid the rent. It would be great if someone who successfully retrieved their package could post here and tell us how they managed to do it.
  3. Hola Sorry but the apartment was rented shortly after it was posted (September 2018) and the tenant says she will live there until we have to carry her out in a box.
  4. Of course people shouldn't be able to charge for parking in public areas. However, many folks rent out their front yard for parking. Of course if someone blocked the entrance and exit to the yard by parking on the public street that would be a problem for the homeowner.
  5. You can buy pepper spray and other self defense items at the BCP Tuesday market.
  6. My friend Beth bought this Oferta Simple Coupon for our use while in Panama City. Unfortunately, because of the national holidays, we couldn't use the coupon for Cocina de la India in PTY. She paid $16 for $32 worth of food. She'd like to offer it to you for $15. The Cocina de la India is widely believed to be the best Indian restaurant in Panama. It is located on Avenida Balboa and is open from noon until 10 pm Monday - Sunday. The coupon doesn't expire until January 18, 2020. Email Beth at bkabrahams@gmail.com or WhatsAp her at 6795-2226 and she'll get the coupon for you.
  7. Inquiring minds want to know. What's going on with the giant excavation between the northbound and southbound lanes of the David highway just a little south of Dolega?
  8. I remember Theresa very well. She was a member of the Boquete Chicas and also the Boquete Bridge Club. She was famous for leading her Ace while defending against a no-trump bid. Bridge players will understand and smile. Rest In Peace Theresa.
  9. Michael died unexpectedly yesterday while playing music with his friends. He taught the 5 rites at the Haven and was the organizer of several musical groups in Boquete. Rest In Peace Michael.

  11. A memorial mass was held today for Hanna, the youngest daughter of Dan Boville and Nixia Santamaria who died at 13 years old after a lengthy illness. RIP Hanna.
  12. Many of us remember Barbara and Ian Phillips who lived in Boquete several years before joining the little migration to Spain;. I received this email from Carol Hurst (another ex-Boquete resident): It is with deepest sadness that regret to inform you of the passing of our dear friend. Ian passed last night at home in the company of his devoted wife Barbara and loving companions Tipper and Dodger. There will be a service TBA. Barbara would love to see you and appreciate your support. Carol Hurst Calle La Romantica, 12 Almuñécar 18690 Granada, Spain +34-699 802 223

  17. A great event and great photos. If you've never been to Nutre Hogar, it's an amazing place. Watch for the next scheduled bus trip to visit.
  18. I want to say that the Jaramillo Arriba water system is one of the smallest in the greater Boquete area. It's also one of the best and least expensive water systems. My neighbors say that it was contamination from the coffee farmers and the water system board had to declare an emergency in order to get a judicial order of no trespassing against the farmers. To my knowledge, nobody has gotten sick. The contamination apparently happened about 8 AM Friday morning and many, many people drank the water before they heard about the problem.
  19. There's a rumor in the neighborhood that the entire Jaramillo Arriba water system got accidentally poisoned yesterday (Friday, July 12) morning about 8. The rumor says we cannot drink the water for 48 hours and we have to flush out all of our water tanks and pipes. Anybody know anything?
  20. This sweet little Sony Vaio computer will be at the book table of the BCP Tuesday market. You can stop by and try it out.
  21. It seems like the lot across from Tre Scalini is the new place for food trucks to locate. Last night I dined al fresco with some good friends: We discovered the latest food truck which appears to be named "Cuba" or "Fabrica Cubana". Here's a scan of their flyer.
