I had to do some maintenance on a backup PC the other day, which I was selling, and Kelvin King introduced me to Hyper Media. I guess this store has been here a couple of years, but I didn’t know about it. It is sort of David’s answer to YOYTEC in Panama city.
As I said in a previous post on new technology, I purchased a new camera to take videos as I drive. One of the uses will be to document the location of various places in David. All Videos taken with the Car Cam will have Tags of “Car Cam Video” and a Category of “Car Cam Video”.
Let me know if these videos will be of use and any special requests of places to get to.
This first Car Cam Video is HERE. This will also let you see the quality of the video that the camera makes.
I was just going through some of the business cards that I had not filed. This one on Popeye’s Pizza I had intended to talk about when I posted the photos from Rome. However, I keep getting more behind and who knows when or if I will get those photos posted.
What I wanted to do was contrast the pizzas in Rome with David’s Popeye’s Pizza. I have been going to Popeye’s since it was originally opened by Pino. He became a good friend and I miss him. How do these pizzas compare to the ones I had in Rome? They are far superior.
Last year, Pino sold Popeye’s and I was worried that the pizza would change. I am happy to say that it has not. It is still my favorite pizza in Panama. This is the only place I go when I want pizza. It is thin crust and cooked in a brick oven. I think I will go there today.
If you stop in tell they you read about them on Chiriquí Chatter.
UPDATE August 23, 2011: I am adding a driving video to help you find Popeye’s Pizza.
As you wake up today, many of you will be facing a day of feasting and enjoying the family. Between now and January 2, you will probably gain a pound or two and may even become tired of turkey and stuffing and all of the foods of the season.
You will be sharing your time with family and friends and will begin thinking of what 2011 holds in store.
A new restaurant has opened in David by the name of Cuatro. It is located across from Parque de Las Madres. Its website can be found HERE.
It is open Monday through Saturday Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Sunday. Bummer. I wish a few more of the better restaurants would be closed on Monday and open on Sunday. Continue reading Cuatro Restaurante→
I had met Manual Linares over a year ago. One evening, shortly after meeting him, I visited with him in his house and learned a lot about the business of Cheese.
Manuel is the owner and operator of Stanza Cheese Factory in David. He had invited me to see the factory and I have been meaning to visit his factory for a long time. I finally did it last Friday.
We found Manual in his office and he provided us with a tour. I have always been a fan of cheese and processes and today I would learn more of the process of making cheese.
Our first stop was to the laboratory where we met one of the keys to a healthy and cost efficient product. The laboratory technician is responsible for determining the quality of the milk that is received by the process. Bacteria is measured. Fat content is measured. Water content is measured among other things.
