      The Boquete Feria de Las Flores y del Café   01/12/2017

      The Boquete Feria de Las Flores y del Café begins Thursday, January 12th and runs until Sunday, January 22nd. For those who have not yet seen -- and experienced -- this magnificent fair, you are in for a treat, and some inconveniences. Most importantly, you must see all of the flowers and the tiendas at and around the Fair Grounds here in Boquete.  During these eleven days you also need to be extremely careful, especially while driving and in planning your activities. In recent years there have been well in excess of 100,000 visitors to Boquete. Last year that number was closer to 200,000, and some predictions for 2017's Fair are closer to 300,000 people coming to our area to see the Fair. Traffic congestion will be the norm. Getting seats in restaurants will be difficult at times. Parking spaces will essentially be nonexistent. Buying groceries may be difficult and time consuming. Busses will be parked on the side streets, making driving difficult. There will be lots (as in LOTS) of people walking, standing around the bridge and the Feria and the many tiendas (small shops and stands [kiosks]) while taking pictures, talking, viewing the scenery, etc. Please be extremely attentive while driving, and drive slowly. Some streets will be blocked and require passes to use them. Other streets will simply be blocked based on congestion. Please be careful of your personal items, such as purses and wallets. Having so many people in one area creates a prime target for pickpockets and other maliantes to do their thing. To repeat, most importantly, you must see all of the flowers and the tiendas at and around the Fair Grounds here in Boquete.  Three closing thoughts. First: enjoy. Second: be safe. Third: you might wish to post your pictures, comments, reviews, etc., here on CL (start a topic or reply to an existing topic in http://www.chiriqui.life/forum/118-boquete-feria-de-las-flores-y-del-café/).   To provide general feedback or ask for help regarding Chiriqui.Life, please leave a posting in Problems, Feedback and Suggestions or email support@chiriqui.life or private message to @Admin_01.

  1. This reply is not a "foster solution" but an idea. I am "fostering" a dog (that apparently I will keep).He wandered to the clinic in October and we sterilized him. He had a wide bloody wound around his neck. He had been tied with a wire and obviously worked at it for a long time in order to get loose. He was fearful but not aggressive toward humans. Freddie is in a place separate from my other dogs. Any time one of them would go near his fence, he would growl. Finally my employee and I would take him on a leash out with the other dogs for 10 minutes or so every day. He was afraid, tucked his tail, and growled when one came near him. Finally, though, he became comfortable around them. We are still doctoring Freddie every morning for a couple of issues; when we finish, Freddie is eager to go with the other dogs. Just an idea to acclimate the dog with other dogs...
  2. Thanks! I had not even thought to look at PriceSmart.
  3. Does anyone know where to find plain clear ammonia without the detergent stuff added? Thanks for any info. Dottie
  4. I've tried the Bach Rescue Remedy and it didn't do a thing to relieve the trembling and shaking.
  5. I don't know. Mine came from Amazon. But it might be available locally.
  6. I don't know. Mine came from Amazon. But it might be available locally.
  7. Did you read my post about Gingko Biloba for dogs? It has certainly helped my dog to be less terrified. She still doesn't like the fireworks but now she doesn't tremble and shake.
  8. I'm not clear on this either. Aren't most of the discounts available to jubilados anyway? Also, if I wanted to sign up from Volcan, would there be a way to pay via PayPal instead of having to come to Boquete to do it with cash or check?
  9. I read it's good for a couple of things. I've been giving two 60mg tablets daily to two of my dogs. Each weighs about 40 lbs. One was peeing on the floor every night. After a couple of weeks of the Ginkgo Biloba, now she seldom does it. The other is TERRIFIED of fireworks, thunder, and even heavy rain. After giving her the Ginkgo Biloba for about 10 days, at least she doesn't tremble and shake all over like she's about to have a stroke! I will probably give the Ginkgo Biloba a long time, if not forever. If your dogs have either problem, it's worth a try. Dottie
  10. The link above does not give me a pdf document. It goes to https://mail.yandex.com/?retpath=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.yandex.com%2Fre.jsx%3Fh%3Da%2C44SbB_IWfZIhJmfvxBRjTw%26l%3DaHR0cDovL3d3dy5jaGlyaXF1aS5saWZlL3RvcGljLzQzNTktYWx0by1hbC1jcmltZW4tbWVkaWNhbC1kaXNjb3VudC1wbGFuLWFubm91bmNlbWVudC8_ZG89ZmluZENvbW1lbnQmY29tbWVudD0xMjMwOQ
  11. No problem, Rodny. Bud explained how it could take a couple of days after I sent the money for it to reach your account. Thanks for your help and service.
  12. $20 for the pair. Included free is the book, "Weight Training Made Easy" by Joyce L. Vedral. Weight Training Made Easy: Transform Your Body in Four Simple Steps. https://www.amazon.com/Weight-Training-Made-Easy-Transform/dp/0446671096/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1482362712&sr=1-1&keywords=weight+training+made+easy I am in Volcan, just one block from Burricos. Come to Volcan, have a nice lunch at Burricos, and pick up your dumbbells and book.
  13. Your first thought was no doubt correct, Bud. I just received my renewal confirmation.
  14. Thanks, Bud. I'll keep watch until perhaps next Monday to see if the "payment due" message goes away.
  15. On the 19th I transferred $80 from my bank to Rodny's bank account. I sent him the email, which is requested to notify him of payment. I'm still getting messages that I have not renewed my account with him. Does Mark Heyer still work with him? If so, can he take care of this? (I don't have Mark's email address.) Thank you.
