I don't live in Boquete because quite frankly there are a lot of cliques and snobs there.  I didn't move to Panama to live with Gringo's.  Though I appreciate being able to converse with English speaking Expats, I wanted to immerse myself in the Panamanian culture.  I don't care for all of it, like the loud music and fireworks for every occasion, but I'm pretty much a live and let live kind of gal. lol

I realized that you had put a lot of work (blood, sweat and probably tears) into the "report" and were not being recognized for your effort.  Someone had to speak up.  I'm not in their clique so I get flamed frequently, but I don't care, I speak my piece regardless.

Have a good day and thanks for the friend invite.
