Features - Places and Faces

  Do you sometimes feel like treating yourself extra special?  Maybe you're celebrating an anniversary, birthday, new grandkid, cruising escape date, whatever.  
  When these memorable times make you wish for an out of the ordinary experience, you have choices.

  The first in a series of restaurants that are just a tad off the beaten path of our marina restaurant experiences is Bahia Paraiso.  Located in Mansions del Rio, the  big attraction here is the air conditioning! 

   Ha, you think I'm joking?  

Panama denies changes to passport extensions E-mail
The News - Latest News

  Panama's Minister of  Tourism Ruben Blades has reportedly denied that the time allowed tourists to stay in the country has been reduced to 30 days, despite contrary reports published in the Chisme-Vindicator.
   He also indicated that the assertion that
Panama now requires vaccinations to allow entry to the country is also false.
(Readers disagree: Check out comments posted on the Lonely Planet forum. http://thorntree.lonelyplanet.com ).
   He warned that "unscrupulous people" are circulating rumors through the internet to damage the country.

Crow Bar introduces 'slow cooked' barbecue E-mail
The News - Latest News
 Crow Bar Marina and Restaurant today unveilsbbq an innovative approach to barbecue, based upon design factors popular in the Texas Hill Country.
  Instead of simply "burning" meat as evidenced at other local restaurants, the above ground pit applies a steady but slow heat to tenderly and gently cook without traumatically searing or scorching the meat fibers, resulting in extremely tender yet thoroughly cooked chicken, pork, sausage and beef, retaining moisture and flavor.
 The carefully engineered pit can be seen (and the results tasted) at the Crow Bar's Friday Flea Market and Calamity Jane Social Hour starting mas o menos at high noon.
  The pit uses selected all-natural blended wood coals instead of noxious propane or carcinogenic charcoal.

American Embassy announces office hours E-mail
The News - Latest News
(From the American Embassy in Guatemala City:)

 The Embassy is actually open this Friday (Guatemalan Army Day).
  However, it's an administrative processing day in the American Citizens Services Unit, so we can only take emergency cases.  
   The following week (starting July 2), we'll be open every day except Wednesday (the 4th), including Friday morning, July 6th. 
Foreign cruisers E-mail
The News - Latest News

Cruising boats from other countries welcomed to the U.S. 

  (Editor's Note: In light of the new restrictions being placed on U.S. pleasure boaters visiting Central and South America, perhaps we should take a look at how the United States treats visiting boaters from the same countries.
  Please note that the only Central and South American countries that are given reciprocal cruising permits are Argentina and Honduras. Not on the list are Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua among many others.
  However, the U.S. charges only $27.50 for the cruising permit and it's valid for one year. There still is the requirement that foreign flagged vessels call in to the U.S. Customs whenever they move from one port to another. That is subject to a $5,000 fine. http://www.customs.ustreas.gov/xp/cgov/travel/pleasure_boats/ user_fee/user_fee_decal.xml)
  The following is an excerpt from the US Customs Service site.  See them for additional information.
Reporting & Entry  AMERICAN PLEASURE BOATS. The master of any American pleasure boat must report to Customs immediately upon arrival from a foreign port or place and must also report foreign merchandise aboard his/her boat that is subject to duty.

Painting day held at Mario's Marina 

By CINDY s/v Dragonheart
  New owner, Jim Ellis, wanted a change for the look of the Cayuco Club. 
Jim and several cruisers put on their thinking caps and decided that a new fun look would do the trick. Marina residents signed up for the big paint day. 

The Way We Were

  Knowing that people will work for food, Jim offered a free BBQ and threw in 2 days of free slippage! 
The painters arrived at 0900 hours primed and ready for work.  Brushes and paint were handed out.  The club had been color coded for ease of painting.  Before you could say Leonardo Da Vinci the old place was taking on a new look.
