Panama April 1st

April 1, 2011 | 573 Views

PANAMA UPDATE: April first was a bit of a “write off” as are most of the cars in Panama city…

I wouldn’t suggest driving down here unless you don’t mind the following adjustments to your rental vehicle…

…a little off the front…

…a trim on the side…

…and a little less in the rear. Luckily we’ve had Nigel the “godfather” to drive us “around” town and by “around” I mean; wrong ways, sidewalks, u-turns etc…in short you need to know your way around town and it helps to have a small nimble car. The good news is there are tons of cabs and cabbies who’ve all been to the “Nigel” school of driving so buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Our day was spent reading through resumes and interviewing a cross section of Panamanians who all appear to be excited by the new WCFC property. Below Tobey and Michael spent the day speaking with candidates…

Our evening was lit up with the highly creative and energetic Fanny Pimentel who is helping organize the Pacific Provider welcome party in Panama city on May 4th

It’s our formal welcome to Panama and it’s going to be a fabulous event…stay tuned for details regarding themes, menus, red carpet, lights and much more.

I’ll end tonight with an observation; all Panamanians are immensely proud of their country and have been hugely receptive to the WCFC venture. In talking a little bit about Panama and its past Fanny let us know of this little cultural “tid-bit”; the term “Gringo” was derived from the phrase “green go home” which was what the locals used to shout at the American soldiers (who wore army greens) during the various US occupations of central America countries. Over time it just became “Gringo”.

That’s all for April 1st!
