Editor's Comment: I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica. As we came out of the airport we had to find a shuttle bus to take us to the rental car company. There were literally people tripping over themselves trying to help us. One guy broke out into a run (I looked for someone with a gun who might have been chasing him) but in fact he was going to a pay phone to call the cell phone of the shuttle bus driver, to get an update on his status, location, and how long we would have to wait. Every Panamanian who works in the tourism industry should simply take a trip to Costa Rica, to see how it "should" be done. Panamanians are only cheerful, happy, and spontaneous when they're drunk. The rest of the time they're grouchy, surly, angry, and generally unhappy. Those two chicks in the photo are in Costa Rica. See how happy they are? Yeah. More like that. Take notes...
