Creative Solutions: iphones, laptops and more!

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo Ops! dropped my phone and  broke the screen. How many times we´ve gone through something like this. And then what a pain: while there are several ways to go about it, the awful truth is that most likely we will allow this situation to go on and on until it starts cutting our face or not even being able to use the touchscreen again. And by then we are on a different stress diagnosis. No need! if you live in Casco, just go Creative Solutions. Located at 3rd street , at Los Del Patio, they … Continue reading

Mahalo! food for body and soul

Casco Antiguo, Panama, Casco Viejo I learned a new word: Mahalo. In Hawaiian it means ” thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, regards, or respects”.  Now we have our own Casco style “Mahalo”, located on A Avenue, next to UnderCover boots, right after 5th and A, by Madrigal. Yes, we do give a lot of landmarks, that´s how our system works! Last night´s soft opening had a really good vibe. Mahalo will offer fresh food, pilates and yoga classes.  They´ll be offering deconstructed sushi, burritos, and salads to go. Soft spot for me: they´ll give you the jars, so you can … Continue reading

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo Shopping in Avenida A is getting better and better. This week, UnderCover Boots inaugurated a beautiful space, between Madrigal and Lupa. The place was packed with neighbors, children, everyone. A beautiful store, great products. Colorful rainboots for everyone (and right on time for Panama´s rainy season!) painted or created by local artists. Of course, I was already wearing them going in… mine had the “papo” flower, but I really loved the “guayacan” long boots and the Rana Dorada elegant black.

La Michoacana, Casco Viejo

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo   Like nothing I´ve ever seen in Casco before: people literally in a line, trying to get in. That is a first. Just like a really busy restaurant in New York or something like that, La Michoacana has clearly become Casco´s new addiction, at the corner of B Avenue and 8th Street. I haven´t tried their lolly pops, and now I´m scared to try them. Maybe if I do, I will too be making the line every Friday night… My solution is to ask you to go and tell me!
