”Traditional” I say 'cause agriculture is the main source of economy, not tourism, so the locals really just live their lives how the always have. ”Multicultural” I say 'cause like every spot in Panama, this beats London or New York anytime. Just in this 15,000 people town there are nationalities around the globe, all of them adapting to the Panamanian culture however, not bringing their own. That I like.
You wouldn't think growing up in northern Finland would prepare you to live in Latin America, would you? Oh, one couldn't be more wrong. People here are open and honest, direct but warm, spontaneous and just embracing, very much like in my hometown and especially within my family and friends. People are focusing on the right things, to other people. Like I've been telling many, I feel so at home and have no obstacles to move here.
|Rice, rice, rice. And "mondongo", a cow's stomach. Somewhat chewy.|
The climate is wonderful, around +30c, sunny with a bit of wind here in the mountain area. All food products are fresh and right from this province, Chiriqui. Pretty delicious.
That's sums it up nicely. Next I'll be posting about the work and things happening here. Just wait for it. There are things going on and I will need your help with them.
