  1. Shortly after my original post (3pm), I received word from a reliable source that he had just driven from David to Boquete with no problem. The utility bill suggestion is excellent.
  2. I have heard of a roadblock in Dolega which is enforcing the quarantine and preventing travel between Boquete and David. Has anyone actually experienced this or have first-hand knowledge?
  3. My car's temp gauge tracked at 35 centigrade, which is what the weather services reported. Plenty hot enough!
  4. Yes--Transmisiones Panama on the Panamericana just past the stoplight for Calle F Sur (Dairy queen, McDonalds, etc.). Phone 774-1039 or Guillermo's cell at 6747-9457; he speaks English.
  5. The 24th is a Monday. "Mardi Gras" (Fat Tuesday) is on the 25th.
  6. This is a basic Intuos Wacom tablet/pen. For working with Photoshop and Lightroom and other apps. New in the box; used 1-2 hours. My hands shake too badly so I must use a mouse. Originally $50 from B&H, Yours for $25. Contact Edward at lanecito@gmail.com.
  7. Does anyone know if the starting point of the cabalgata will remain the same this year (that is, on Calle F Sur--McDonald's street)? The gathering/starting point is a good to take photos.
  8. Imagine their surprise when the folks from Santiago arrive in David and look for the on-ramp to the new Boquete highway! Or perhaps not....
  9. Another source of information about the invasion is the documentary "The Panama Deception."
  10. This is a Mexican popular art shop which also sells very good Mexican food. The meals are cooked off-site and heated for customers. We had tamales and flautas which were excellent, and enchiladas con mole, which were even better! The owner is Mexican. There is no beer or liquor; I will bring a flask or carry out. Rose had reheated enchiladas the next day and loved them. They serve food daily from 11am to 8pm; Saturday 11 to 4pm, and closed Sundays. The shop itself opens an hour earlier. It is easy to find: coming from Boquete, on the street from the Panamericana going to Hospital Chiriqui, it is a large building on the right, some 3 or 4 stops from the Panamericana.

  12. I went yesterday with my Panamanian family, and we were quite pleased. The food has a light touch and is not as spicy as the Vietnamese food I had in Chicago. Drinks are limited--2 brands of beer, Balboa and Coor Light. Parking is easy in the Romero lot next to McDonald's. They asked if we wanted the Pensionado discount; "Well, sure...." We plan on returning and trying more items on the menu.
  13. They also have UNSALTED Mixed Nuts! A premium mix which is healthier and not as addicting as salted nuts.
  14. Call Jaime at Super Frio in David--excellent English. Auto Aire Super Frio, S.A. 775-9915 Main, Work Avenida 7a Oeste, David, Panama Notes: Jaime Munoz 6572-1810 Jaime suggested that I order parts from the states. At Rock Auto I got original equipment (Denso) for my Toyota.
  15. Anywhere you go, you have to insist on balancing all 4 wheels. The norm is to only balance the fronts.
  16. I got good prices on the tires but had to go to Bremen to get a correct steering alignment.
  17. I just emailed him regarding E-cedula paperwork. He replied in English. I'll use him when I get it together. luistaxi777@gmail.com
