  1. until

    Sounds interesting
  2. Saw that boat when we were down there. It is a three pontoon craft and looking at the way it went down I would suspect a breach of one of the outer pontoons. Reports say it had recently been repaired and put back into service.
  3. As I said before, the gubmint don't want to see efficiency. You would think they might find more fulfilling endeavours.....
  4. Judy, I am on Moviestar and see that message a lot. However the call almost always goes through after several seconds, maybe up to 30-40. I think it might just be the network trying to connect.
  5. That's the way to do it! Government incapability to provide sufficient medication, then make personal imports difficult. Guess they don't appreciate efficiency.
  6. Panama already has its own military. They are disguised ( not well) as police.
  7. I don't think it has anything to do with location. It's more a function of a person's ability to adapt. Those that make it here could probably make it anywhere ( mas o menos) because they have an innate ability to adapt and enjoy. Doesn't matter where you are ( well, OK, for me the primary demand is no snow!) if you have the mindset, you will be fine. I'm here and happy, but I'd be just as happy in Singapore.
  8. Just read about it in La Prensa
  9. Thanks. Things change so fast I'm always concerned when I order something!
  10. Panawanna, there are options out there. You do have to make your own decision and not be swayed by slick marketing. It is going to cost, but everything good does. PM me if you want more info.
  11. I suspect the lane closure is going to be a long term thing. We have been down to David several times in the last few weeks and the lane closure has been there every time. Another clue is that they have a road crew cleaning up Via Boquete in the area of the entrance/exit to the site. I suspect ATTT have spoken to them about mud on the road. Anyway, enjoy either way, a slowdown merely gives us time to check out the progress.
  12. It is a long read, but very interesting: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jun/01/brazil-operation-car-wash-is-this-the-biggest-corruption-scandal-in-history?CMP=share_btn_link
