Why Panama

As Jeff and I get ready to travel to Panama, the same question keeps coming up. Why Panama? The short answer is, we went there on vacation, loved it and decided it would be a great destination for us.

Here are the top 10 reasons.

  1. Amazing people and culture.
  2. City, mountains, beaches, and jungle.
  3. Good coffee
  4. Lower cost of living
  5. On the equator so same sunset/sunrise time year-round.
  6. We saw an anteater when we were there
  7. They let you pretend to run the Panama Canal
That is me and a mannequin, not Jeff.

8. We also needed a country that had a song from our childhood associated with it.

Continent- not a country.
City – not a country
City – not a country
Bingo!

9. It needed a good Palindrome. Here were the contenders:

 Eva, Can I Stab Bats In A Cave? – not bad, but where is this cave.

Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm – not going to a place with crazed owls.

 A Santa Lived As a Devil At NASA – what the hell?

Panama, a man, a plan, a canal, Panama. – Nice!

10 And a good hat.

Fez – too much tassel

Beret – too flat
cowboy hat – too hard to pack
Panama hat – perfect
