With our hardhats in hand we made the short walk back to La Posada, a restoration project we looked at last week. As you can tell from the pictures, they have a little work to do. The agent says it will be ready by November. In a lot of ways Panama is just like the islands - when someone asks a question the answer is always meant to please - not be accurate. In the islands it’s the “don’t worry be happy” attitude, in Panama it’s "juego vivo" - live without hassle, that rules the day. Hey - “whatever works” does it for me.
The work done so far is pretty good, but the problem with construction in Panama usually turns up in the final phases - the finish work. Makes it difficult to make a decision when the work is in progress. Towards the end of the month we will be able to meet the developers (two brothers from the U.S.) so we might be able to get a better idea what the finished product will be like. Today, it’s on our list - but we are still determined to look at other options before we start reaching for the checkbook.
One the way back to the apartment we saw this real estate speculator - just hanging around checking out the area.
