  1. Many of you know that we run a mail service at the Tuesday market at BCP. We sell US stamps and find volunteers to take the mail to the US and put it in a mail box every week. The person who bought us our last roll of 100 stamps in the U.S. apparently forgot to pack the stamps so we are desperate to get some stamps to sell to those folks who need to mail a letter. If you have any spare stamps, we can either buy them from you or replace them when we get another roll. It would be great if you could bring them to the table in front of the theater on Tuesday. Or, maybe you know someone who will be coming to Panama from the U.S. soon and who would be willing to bring us a roll of stamps. This is a very unique service that is offered only in Boquete and we need the community's support to keep it going. Thank you.

  6. I understand there is a new road replacing the old path and steps the locals would use to walk into Boquete. The road comes into the Boquete-David road near the bottom of the hill to Alto Boquete. What I don't know is where it comes into Volcancito. I want to drive it but, since it is steep in some places, I want to drive it from the top down. Who knows where in Volcancito I can access this road?
  7. This is a great new option for a good lunch in David. Their specialty is a gourmet hamburger and draft/craft beer. It turns out they just buy the beer from the Boquete Brewing Company and mark it up a bit so it's not cheap. They always have a different soup every day. The lunch special is a good value. It consists of a choice of 3 appetizers. I ordered the ensalda and my two friends ordered the special patacones. Unlike any patacone you've every eaten -- delicious. Then you have the choice of one of the lunch entrees. We all ordered the gourmet cheeseburger because I had heard good things about it. You could also have some other choices. I remember a roast beef sandwich being one of them. The meal is accompanied with hand cut french fries and a delicious lemonade. All of this for $7. There is a full bar if you want a cocktail and the beer is wonderful -- although at $5 a glass, it's a luxury. The place is located across the street from the new Hotel Lleras on Avenida Olbaldia (the road that goes between Super Baru and the Romero's grocery store in Dolegita). Like most Panamanian businesses, they haven't mastered advertising to gringos. They were very grateful for our patronage and even the chef came out to thank us. Although I was with 3 Spanish speaking Panamanians, the waitress spoke mostly to us in English.
  8. This very heavy steel entertainment center is built for a large TV or big LED screen. The tempered glass shelves that fit underneath the top (which is brushed steel) will accommodate other entertainment equipment. We have the shelves and the fitting to mount the shelves. Everything is in good shape. I understand that the steel box in the back is for screen mounting (we do not have that part) and for cable management.Need strong guys to move. Being sold by the Handicap Foundation for $45. Email pjbarrett@aol.com to buy.

  11. Here's a project for the handy man or woman. Or maybe you can find a shop in David to repair the wicker seat and back. It could be a nice piece of furniture.

If not sold before, it can be viewed at the Volcancito Mission on Monday, February 12 between 2 and 3:30
  12. On Thursday 10 of us from Boquete attended Panama the Musical. It was great fun. While most of us felt the plot was a little convoluted, the music and dancing, and lighting were outstanding. We had bought front row center seats but those turned out to be almost on top of the orchestra so we traded them for Row H seats which were perfect. The show will only be in Panama a bit longer before moving to Toronto and then on to Europe. The theater was one I had never heard of and is located in The Ciudad Del Saber (aka Clayton). It was an excellent theater with good acoustics. I know Linda Hart and Judy Tovar are organizing an overnight bus trip to the show in early March. That would be a lot of fun to go on. Don't miss it before it's gone on to bigger and better things.
