New U.S. Counsel to Visit Chiriquí January 13, 2012

The U.S. Embassy asked if I could estimate the headcount of the number of people that would be attending. If you would drop me an email at donraycc @ gmail . com, (remove the spaces) I will send them the head count. The U.S. Embassy announcement follows:

  3. Don, thanks again for your great site and the info that you continually pass along. It is always refreshing to see that ChiriquiChatter seems a bit more immune from the mindless sniping seen elsewhere.

    In the six years I’ve had direct (tho’ now long-distance!) interest in all-things-Chiriqui, data would suggest that the Embassy has a significant role in assisting ex-pats when catastrophic disruption occurs in personal circumstances, and it would seem that as remote as the Embassy may seem, at times of crisis it can provide quite necessary services when circumstances become challenges.

    I’ll look forward to your follow-up on this visit.

    Wishing you and yours the greatest of great New Years,


  4. Met with the new Consul General, Kent Brokenshire. He seemed like a no nonsense, no BS kind of guy. If you don’t have his telephone number it’s 207-7332.
