Holy Cow, Batman!

Can it be? Is it time to go home already? I miss my wife and son and look forward to seeing them, but I don’t really want to leave Panama, at least not yet.

After breakfast this morning, it’s off on the Trans-Panama highway again, back to Panama City. We’ll spend the night there and then fly home on Wednesday. By Thursday morning, I’ll be back at my desk in Canada.

This has been a fruitful and rewarding trip, and we have all had a lot of fun. I hope to be back here in the Boquete and Rovira Arriba area again soon, possibly before the end of the year. By then, my partners and I hope to be in ownership of our proposed Stonehedge Estates, and doing the bureaucratic boogie while trying to get official approvals on a site plan for the property.

The psychedelic cow in the picture can be seen at the Villa Marta garden in Boquete. It is a private garden that is a ‘must see’ in Boquete.


  1. I'm sure this is not going to be news, but under-the-table money is how one greases the wheels of the bureaucratic "progress" machine in banana republics/beaner states.

  2. Yep... and as a Panamanian I was speaking with admitted: "In this country, it's who you know."

    Of course, that's true in most countries. The thing that impressed me in Panama is how similar their legal system and property laws are to Canadian and American norms.
