laura alexanderLaura Alexander of Expats in Panama / Expat Explorers group has had her online accounts hacked, “My websites, facebook, paypal account, and emails have been completely hacked and taken out of my control. I have contacted the company authorities and webhosting services, however am having a hard time proving I am who I say I am because whomever hacked in has all of the information one would need to say the same thing. I may have to go to higher authorities, but the hosting services have stated that, so far, nothing seems to have been done at this time; yet it is obvious they wanted control for some reason”.

Laura fell in love with Panama in 2002 and organized trips and events for English speaking newcomers to Panama. Her organization work has always been unpaid, from the heart and often completely voluntary. Her events ran like well oiled machines. She sent out a popular monthly events newsletter through the Expat Explorers yahoo group.
 
Over the last year, Laura has been planning her retirement and moved her focus to her family. As such she has not logged in to the yahoo group for sometime. She didn’t realize the seriousness of this matter until she found herself “locked completely out of all of the @ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

A Message from TY:

Michelle and I were saddened to hear about 2 of our fellow expats passing in El Valle. What happened to us pales in comparison to loosing a life long companion. Our deepest condolences to those who are suffering after such a loss.

As for what happened to Michelle and me, I can not put into words how thankful we are for everyone’s concern, prayers and well wishes. It is deeply touching to know we have so many friends so far away from Canada. 

Many have asked us what happened.

 
El Pampero: The best sausages in the Pacific beach area PDF Print E-mail
Panama Life - Restaurant Reviews
Friday, 15 June 2012 13:20
 

El Pampero restaurantPeople are always asking where to buy the delicious sausages that end up on BBQ grills at Pacific beach house parties. Parrillada El Pampero, which many simply call the green building across from Banco Nacional, is the place with the amazing chorizo. It has been in business for over 30 years. The open air restaurant is popular among locals and is economically priced. The outside looks much like your local fonda, but the place is actually quite large - there are more than a dozen tables inside. The walls are decorated with Panamanian handcrafts and the ceiling with bamboo sticks. The service is friendly, and the customers relaxed.  A saying at Parrillada El Pampero is "se come rico, no rapido" (eat well, not quickly), which sums up the atmosphere well.
