  1. Your subject is very misleading. It infers that you have no electricity. However, upon reading your post, it is the payment office (in Boquete?) that is down. You may want to be more careful in the future in choosing your words. I just paid my UF bill through the internet about 10 minutes ago, without problem.
  2. What do you mean by registering? What does registering do for you? I’ve been to and used their services before without having registered. I’ve just paid a fee, which is very low by US standards, and been taken well care of. So what are you talking about?

    Lucero Golf & Country Club Mexican Night

    They have a problem of keeping facts together. Is this dinner thing from 5:00 to 8:00, or 5:30 to 8:00, or 5:00 to 8:30, or what?????

    Victorian High Tea Party


    Dear Linda, This is a very nice follow through on your High Tea. I rarely (other than for Amigos Animales) see something after the fact that talks about what amount was raised or accomplished from all of these fund raising activities. Yours is refreshingly transparent and specific. Thank you for taking the time to let the community know of your successes and accomplishments. One would have thought that the police department would have already had a stove, but then this is a country needing many things. Glad you folk are making a difference for the people who help protect us.
  5. P.S., I just learned about following stuff here from a different posting. This website is something else. Lots of things that I am learning. Not like Facebook at all. Actually think I may like this more than Facebook because things are organized in folders that make sense to me. I am now following this subject, or at least I think and hope I am.
  6. Gracias para su informacion. Y ahora, pensando sobre esta expedicion. (I like to practice my Spanish, which is horrible, but at least I try.)
  7. This sounds really interesting. How would this work for someone who has difficulty walking and uses a cane? You know, a senior citizen like a lot of us expats here in Chiriqui who are less than stable and not very physically adroit.
  8. A 19% gain in banking in two months is huge. What is the real story here? Is Panamá setting itself up — or being set up — for another Panamá Papers incident? Say, Panama Papers, Round Two?

    Cinco de Mayo Fiesta


    Forgot to mention that there are two reviews of Casa Mexicana on this website. http://www.chiriqui.life/blogs/entry/327-la-casa-mexicana-david/ http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/8656-la-casa-mexicana/

    Cinco de Mayo Fiesta


    Sounds like a fun thing to do. I’ve eaten at Casa Mexicana a few times and like it. The thing that stands out to me is the cleanliness. I can’t see the kitchen but don’t concern myself because they seem to understand this is a restaurant, and health issues such as keeping things clean is important. I wouldn’t call this place a típico. SinceI I don’t live in Boquete, it doesn’t make sense for me to join your bus party. I am fairly close to this place already. Hope yall have fun.I know you will enjoy the food and service. This is one of my favorite eateries in David.

    Big Changes at the BCP

    I agree. I was going to post similar words, but some accuse me of being too negative at times. Thanks for taking the heat off of me for this one.
  12. Having a bit of fun here. Given the title of the news article and the content of Doug’s reply, maybe the title should be changed to reflect megaprojects and microprojects because I can’t seriously think of the Panamonte bridge being a either a project or miniproject, and certainly not a megaproject. Microproject is the best word I can think of. 😎

    New Restaurant Grand Opening

    Total waste of my time. Not possible to read anything. These guys are headed for failure and disappointment if they can’t get something this basic under control.
