How to Wash Your Clothes in Your Hotel Room

This evening I started to think about my stay here in Panama.  It’s been over two weeks since I got here and my clothes could probably use a good cleaning.  But then I realized, how? 
So in a synaptic pulse that seemed like such a terrific idea at the time I headed for the bathroom.  I […]

Preparing for Brazil

Well I’m sitting out by the pool today, enjoying a refreshing pina colada and listening to some great Johnny Cash music.  I stopped by the Brazillian embassy this morning and picked up my passport and 5 year multiple entry VISA to Brazil.

The Panama Canal

Today was an action packed day.  I woke up much later than I had intended but nevertheless showered up and headed for the Panama Canal.

Going to Brazil soon & more thoughts on Panama

Well Panama just isn’t “doing it” for me.  It’s a very busy city but it doesn’t have the right flow for my tastes.  Imagine New York at 1/3 the scale with an all latino population, then let the infrastructure (think roads, buildings, “freeways”, city “buses”, etc.) all go to hell, turn the weather up to […]

Panama City – Initial Reaction

Well I made it to Panama. I checked into my hotel late last night and am now sitting inside a McDonalds and using their free wireless internet.
My first impression of Panama is one of great scale.  Panama City has all the markings of a large urban city with loud streets and very tall highrise buildings.  […]
