  1. Fanny Romero & her husband will be opening a new restaurant location in Volcan Tuesday, August 1. From FB " We are waiting for you at the grand opening of our restaurant in volcano (Old Sunrise Mountain Village), Tuesday 1St August at 5:00 pm. We thank you for your assistance. I believe this location is on the road to Cerro Punta, about a half mile from the main intersection (police station) in Volcan.
  2. Drama in the Gulf of Chiriqui

    Yes, I watched it, and as I said, it appears to me that this was an angry response by fishermen whose line was illegally cut. Any sign, in the video of a ship being rammed? Nope. BTW, Bruce's smaller white charter boat can also be clearly seen in the video.
  3. Drama in the Gulf of Chiriqui

    Groups that are represented by the "Sea Shepard" and such have their own agenda(s). It really doesn't make much sense to me to faithfully believe what ever they have to say without at least listening to the other side.
  4. Drama in the Gulf of Chiriqui

    Don't believe everything you read in the news or online. A friend of mine, whose boat was right there, and is intimately familiar with fishing regulations, told me that NONE of the boats pictured above was fishing illegally. Imagine, then, that your fishing nets are purposely severed by a third party. BTW, neither the "Sea Shepherd" or "Dejoria" was ever rammed as stated.
  5. Island Get Away Spacial

    Four days in space for the low-low price of $650?? Such a deal!
  6. Grafted Hass Avocado Tree

    BTW, avocado trees need excellent drainage. That and the selection of appropriate root stock may be key factors for success in growing these.
  7. Grafted Hass Avocado Tree

    While I would not normally recommend this, a friend here in Volcan has grown a couple trees from Hass seeds. Kind of a crap shoot, but he claims the fruit from said trees is remarkably similar to that from his Hass clonal trees. Also, if I remember right, he claims to have gotten fruit from these seedlings after only 3-4 years. Might be worth a try.
  8. Nice concise report about the sport. One of the issues we have had is that as people become more proficient at the game, newcomers can be a bit intimidated at the level of play. Its our hope, in Volcan, to buy another net, so that one court can be dedicated to new players.
  9. Warren Fast is one in the Boquete group. I think they are playing maybe two days a week at the large gym there. wfast54@shaw.ca In Volcan, we play Tuesday & Friday at 2:00 at the lions club. gbakke342@msn.com You might be able to get by just borrowing racquets to play. At our facility, that's what we generally do, as we have a couple of young Panamanian guys who play with us.
  10. Yes. There is a group in Boquete & a group in Volcan. Still to come in the not too distant future - the "Chiriqui Challenge", an informal competition between the two emerging super-powers.
  11. How Living Abroad Can Reduce Your Stress

    Yes, yes I swallow. Hmm..that just didn't sound right....NOT! "The site that potential expats trust" C'mon Chuckie.....

  13. Are not Africanized honey bees the main form of honey bee found here? Seems like it would make a lot more sense for a bee keeper to re-locate such a swarm rather than destroying them.
  14. This is within about 1/4 mile of where American expat Georgia Tripp was murdered in 2013.
