Unseasonable rains keeping Volcan green
Welcome friends from around this great world to the MAY edition of the Panama Nuggets NEWSLETTER for 2007.
May in Volcan has seen some unseasonable rains. Most days we still get a clear blue sky to start with but then around mid-day the sky opens up and waters the flowers and all the residents. The temperature is still averaging 62F to 70F, so it is a warm rain. Hopefully I can report next month that things are back to normal.
Many thanks to all our readers from around the world because in April we set several new records for this website. For the first time we recorded over 7,000 visitors within one month and people looked at over 15,000 pages of information and pictures. As the above paragraph clearly outlines we will continue to give you the straight goods on Panama, even when they are not that wonderful. However, our belief, after many years writing and touring the retirement locations of this world, is that Panama is still the best place – although at the moment you will need a raincoat along with your sunscreen.
