PANAMA – FAMOUS FOR THE CANAL, SPLENDOR AND ADVENTURE – NOT FOOD!


A dear friend of mine just returned from a six week vacation in the states.  As usual, she returned with goodies one can’t acquire here in Panama.  For me it was lids for the wide mouth canning jars and peppermint oil.

We spent the other day catching up. She described in detail all the food she expressly sought, where she visited and the activities in which she participated.  Then she mentioned the food again.

I have other friends who left last week.  The husband of the couple is going to visit his family. His wife has a different agenda.  She e-mailed it to me a week before they left.
