Cambio vs Change

Cambio is the spanish word for CHANGE. Obama's campaign was based on change. Panama's new President, Ricardo Martinelli, also ran under the mantra of Cambio. It's interesting to note that Obama is scheduling a vacation that will cost the US taxpayers around Twenty Million dollars. Martinelli, on the other hand just pledged to donate his entire Presidential salary to charity. He also uses his own plane at his own cost to travel. He doesn't live in the Presidential Palace, preferring to pay his own way.
As an ex-patriot, living in Panama, I believe Panama got the better deal. The changes I see in Panama are good. The changes in the USA make me sad.
