July 4th in Panama

Fireworks last night

semi-overcast 80 °F

It's not a holiday here in Panama.Everyone is working, traffic started bright and early and there was a cooling morning rain. Last night was our firework show. Lightning declared independence and lit up the sky. Most of it was in the distance over Panama Bay lighting up the cargo ships as they waited to enter the Canal.054_-_Copy__2_.jpg Sometimes the sky seemed red, white and blue as the lightning brust in the air.

The storm moved over the city later in the evening, mostly rain, but some lightning, which brought a different perspective. It was as if Gotham City was calling Batman.


The past two days we have explored the area a little more, walking to a fresh veggie and fruit market, finding a health food store, a sushi bar, and visiting the Trump Towers. A beautiful building with a great restaurant overlooking Panama Bay. Almost the same view we have from our condo. Walking about has its challenges; cracked sidewalks, open sewer drains, and dog pooooooop. It is everywhere, no one picks up after their pets and the signs are completely ignored. 006_-_Copy.jpg Watch your step is truly imortant here in Panama City.

Last night at 6pm my wife's website went live. Since commerical advertising is frowned upon on this site I can't share the link. However, if you are a little bit imaginative write down three w's, drkrysstine, and the appropriate com. Place periods in the usual spots. You'll find it. She's very excited about her window to the world. We've already found two misspelled words that will be fixed soon. No matter how many times things are checked and rechecked, read and reread, it seems something always get through the final inspection. Damn!

Have a great July 4th holiday!
