Taking to an American friend the other day while having tea in Casco Viejo, I realized not everyone´s teeth are the same… nor the same cost. When she told me how much she paid to get hers cleanned and/ or worked out I almost freaked … girl! you could be partying in Panama all through carnival with that kind of money!
This afternoon I´m visiting my dentist, which I´m proud to say is the only top of the line expense I have in my life. Well, the other one is my dog, I´ll do anything for my Chispa. And my husband. Humm… now that I think about it, I do have quite some expenses! no disclosure on who comes in first…
But seriously, cleaning my teeth with a US trainned Panamanian top on his career dentist is $60. For fixing her teeth which had a hairline crack with great care was something close to $350. In the States, she commented, this would be easily $1500. Maybe a $1000 since she could bargain a bit. This equals some serious partying at Carnival … and still get your teeth worked out!
Seriously, think about it. Carnivals are coming! starting on the 12th of February… where do you rather be?
