Okay, I know every year I say bah humbug to the shopping madness at the Plaza El Terronal mall. I adamantly make a vow to not go there in December as the parking is nonexistent and people are distracted. But every year I find I do go to the mall for one thing or another.
I guess the good part is that it is only 5 minutes from my house so the extra 20 minutes it takes to find a parking place only adds up to half an hour.
I also have to say, I have never seen so many Christmas decorations for sale. Panamanians truly love the holidays.It is the beginning of summer, kids are out of school for summer vacation and it is a great time to party.
