09:18 am - The Internet is Off for the Weekend
Quick update from Bocas del Toro, an island of Panama in the Carribean Sea. Sitting at a Linspire workstation in a internet cafe, which is nice to see. And the gringo geek who obvious set it all up -- and their signs about "10 mile wireless internet coming, signal test January 15 2005". After diving yesterday, I am still trying to figure out why I don't just actually go and become a dive master, maybe run one of these cafes on the side. The gaming cafes of Panama City are pretty neat to watch too. Panama City is a fascinating place. The Canal is impressive, the fully loaded Panamax ships and loche system even more so.

its been years since ive been back BDT .. did you happen to take lots of pics? would love to see it.

as far as panama city, the place is an interesting mix and yes the game centers are all kinds of fun, i bet they have improved, ohh and the linspire thing, i know a few geeks or rather knew that are not gringos that could have set it up, in fact my linux experience started in panama, with an old ibm laptop and slackware ... back in 1997 :O
