We have made many trips in the past few years to Panama and we are in the process of building a condo on the outskirts of Panama City. We are trying to learn Spanish and attended Spanish language school on our last trip there.
We love to travel and look forward to seeing more of the United States and as our Spanish improves, more of Latin America.
