Monster Car Visits David

As I was returning home, I noticed a crowd in front of Plaza El Terronal. I finally realized it was people taking photos of a Monster Car that was parked on the street.

I asked the people that were responsible for the car and it is on its way to Panama City, to the Rod Carew Stadium, for a Monster Car Show the weekend after next. If you are into that sort of thing and in the Panama area when the show is running, you might want to check it out.

Rain Much Of The Night

We had a nice rain for much of the night. The morning is still overcast with signs that there may be more rain throughout the day. Rain never slows down anything in Panama unless it approaches the flood stage. House construction goes on, shopping goes on, and life goes on.

I am going to get out a little later and help a visitor to the area get an idea of this part of Chiriquí. We will visit some of the English schools and see what ever is on her agenda.

Tomorrow I have a dental cleaning. Hope to make a drive up to Volcan for breakfast on Saturday as long as it isn’t raining in the morning. That should be a brisk environment in the morning. I will need to remember to dress a little warmer.

The week is shaping up well. Remember to get out and smell the roses. It just doesn’t get any better than this.

Sunday at the Movies

I received this notice with a request to post.

Please join us this Sunday, May 31 at 1:00 PM at Hotel Fundadores for a showing of “THE DARJEELING LIMITED” starring Adrien Brody, Angelica Huston, Jason Schartzman and Owen Wilson (2007)
Cost: $2.00.
Parking in the back of the hotel

Please, Adults Only.

For movie buffs, a discussion will follow the movie, upstairs, in the restaurant…over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee…or by the river at the Fundadores.


Synopsis: Three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year, set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other — to become brothers again.

This movie showing is the 3rd of 3 films offered here in Boquete.  Due to popular demand, the Steering Committee has decided to continue to show monthly movies each first Sunday hereafter. Please arrive by 12:45 pm to secure good seating. No food is sold at the movie.

Our next movie, scheduled for July 5, is “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” (1994).
