It's Carnival time in Panama. The festivities started yesterday and will be going on until Tuesday night. Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and also a holiday. Then Thursday lent begins and work resumes. I haven't been out to experience any of the action, but there's music and parties going on all over the neighborhood. All I have to do is sit outside my front door to get the rhythm and flavor of it all.
Work has really picked up. It's going to be VERY difficult to focus on what needs to be done with all the good times going on around me. Going to a Fat Tuesday bash, though. Maybe that will make up for it.
