Welcome aboard.

Can I crash on your couch when I come to Panama? Just kidding.

hola Greg & thx for the welcome, you do the "crashing on couches" thing lol, i used to do that for a while, half time staying couple days with friends, other half in hotels, dont matter as long as you keep moving lol

btw, in my title i meant "newbie....US guy living in panama" since this is America too!!!! ;)

Hi Zachary,
Welcome to Panama.
Like they say, it's one of those places "Came for a visit and ended up staying"...
We've been here 7 years and now settled in to society here and love it...
Saw you had probs with your passport - if you haven't got it sorted on Monday PM me as I have a couple of good contacts at the Embassy.

Andrew, yea i love this place too, i plan on coming back here on January 10th for quite some time. I will apply for Visa and all that good stuff.

and yea i finally got in touch with someone from the citizen services who seems to be helping me get a temp passport, i find out monday if i can fly back to the states. thanks for your offer of help, i REALLY do appreciate it :)

have a nice weekend and hope to speak to you some other days ;)
