Enjoy the read here.

Measurement Conterter (Reference Tool)

History & ReferenceThis is a cool little site that contains all kinds of conversion tools to change pounds to kilos, feet to meters, etc. The best part is there's a second part down on the page where you can convert sqaure meters to square feet. People in the US are accustomed to thinking of living spaces in square feet, and all of the apartments and properties in Panama are usually advertised in square meters, so this is a nice tool to have access to.
