Snapshot Sunday ~ 26/10/2014

On Friday there was an opening of the new  Mireya Moscoso  museum.   Mireya Moscoso was the first woman president of the Republic of Panama and she is from the Pedasi district.  In fact, probably every second person you pass on the street is her relative in some shape or form.  One of the Moscoso family houses that faces Parque Central has recently undergone a beautiful renovation and now stores memorabilia and pictures from Señora Moscoso’s early life and on.

SU and I popped in briefly on our way to the coronation on Friday night.  Despite SU’s insistence that he wasn’t dressed appropriately the photographer was determined to take our picture after we chatted with the President about the Canadian memorabilia.

Afterwards, the photographer told me to take a picture of the picture on his camera.  The resulting photo was pretty good…in the campo.

    I love the way they’re all related. Even the ones who aren’t actually related think they are, and it’s all like one big family. 🙂

      Here I think there is only about a half dozen last names that seem to have all intermarried. I guess not much differently than small farming and fishing communities in North America and elsewhere. I imagine it’s also the same in Rio Hato.

        for Karen: It is. In some of the mountain villages where there’s been intermarriage over generations among a very few families it’s a real problem. But In Rio Hato, it’s kind of friendly.

    Tell SU that he needs to get some new clothes, especially if he is going to meet “Presidents”! ;>}}

      Yes, but it’s not like he doesn’t have the clothes in his closet. I looked at him before we left the house and asked him if he was sure that was what he wanted to wear… 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
