Living Third World Style

  1. 1. Living Third World StyleFOR THE MOST part , I AM AN EASY guy TO PLEASE. Produce nice warm weather and a box oforiginal Ritz crackers and i am generally happy. Whenever you bring monkeys into the picture, Imwithin heaven. Panama amazed me when I first got down here however long ago. Compact countryof panama City is fairly modern in that its got lots of tall structures and a pretty durable bankingcenter, but it is the men upon horses and roadside meat shacks simply outside the city, that readhilariously out-of-date. In a sense, this comparison , this juxtaposition associated with old and brandnew , of tradition as well as contemporariness is what keeps me on my toes.Because the us military occupied compact country of panama for so long, we now have way morechain dining places than most countries in Central America. We now have Quiznos, Burger King, aswell as my personal favorite, Wendys where I can continue my ongoing french-fry research as towhether or not there really is a difference between the actual medium and biggie portions. Most ofthese fast-food joints will deliver to your house, via small noisy motorbikes. Youd think this kind ofservice would nourish the nations lazy, couch potato market but Panamanians, typically , are not fat.Mistake: Arriving in compact country of panama in September with no rain jacket. The weather here ishard to grumble about though: regarding 80 year-round. The rainy season lasts a good 5 months,during which you can expect a torrential rain storm every few days. Its during this season that Ivecome to encounter new levels of rainfall , new intensities associated with rain that before I neverknew existed. Just yesterday, for example , it was raining so difficult that this gushing rivulet ofrainwater raised some kids perform truck--the kind by having an orange body as well as yellow roof--and drifted it all the way down to Via Argentina.During rain storms, i come up with lyrics. If you werent aware, im a bit of a underground rap artist,and sometimes , I like to use my articles as marketing vehicles for this expertise. Here are a few linesi threw together regarding Panama:"yeah I like to go out to seashoresLas Palmas, you know.Cheaters envy basically want to get grimey wit it down within CoronadoCoral lodge in San BlasAnd when I get there , I just sit back as well as chill."The safety standard here is fairly high, though it may be the occasional murder or even robbery thatsimply reminds me of that all-too-cliché style of living within the third world. Ive been robbed andtruly , its not all that poor : In fact, I say if you cant beat em, sign up for em. To a lot of people , livingin a big city with petty criminal offense is a bad thing, but to me there could be absolutely no betterplace to practice some stealing associated with my own. I mainly do pick pocketing and I dabblewithin dog-napping. In the structure of criminals, pickpockets like me are like at the end , one abovemailbox burglars and the men who steal pies from windowsills.In all seriousness although , the cops are pretty friendly as well as good to expats like myself. It is acity though, with city life you receive crime. Nothing is as well extreme, and to give you an idea, we
  2. 2. feel much more comfortable here than we do in wa D.C. Costa rica has gotten a shameful rap forprostitution and some of that applies to Panama too. Lots of men explore that sphere and thoughtheyll by no means tell their companion , a fair amount cheat on their spouses. This is kinda likerequesting a mime who his favorite artist is: you know he has one, but he will never tell you their ownname.Theres an old saying that goes something like this: give a guy a fish, he or she eats fish for a day.Give a man an angling pole and he will catch tuna seafood that same day. The actual fishing downhere is really pretty magnificent , rivaling that of south america. We have what is regarded as "thebest fishing lodge in the world" down within the Darien jungle. We also have what I consider to be thebest shortcut within the world--the Panama Canal--which is a little bit more than a tourist trap.Im sure theres some way they calculate standard of living and Im assuming its on a 100 point scale.If thats the case, i would give Panama the 94. I love the truth that I can have a stunning $100 dinneratop a high-rise (the actual restaurant scene is off the hook) or a $2 mountain of meals at a café. Ilove how I can be within meetings in the city in shiny structures with snappy night stands , then 2hours later , be sitting in the actual San Blas carribbean archipelago with a 500 year-old tribeassociated with Kunas. I love the actual infrastructure, which makes it simple to get to secludedseashores and mountainous regions in a breezy morning. In my opinion, Panamanians take greatpleasure within pretending to be tough. I love the people although because I think theyre unique:hard on the outside but caring as well as sincere in the middle--similar to Junior mint candies.If youre scanning this , then youve probably taken the time to read the entire article which Icommend you on. I would recommend, nevertheless , that you do something more productive withyour period : go to night college or something. Oh, and when its your birthday today, happy birthday.Costa Rica marketing
