One of the things that always intrigued me about Panama is how quickly this place moves… it was among the first things that I noticed when I first started coming here almost 10-years ago– there’s always something major happening.
Landing at Tocumen airport last night, right off the bat I noticed some recent upgrades since my last trip here several months ago. Most obvious– Panama’s airport has gone trilingual. All the signs are in English, Spanish… and now Portuguese as well.
While I was waiting in the VIP lounge for the porter to find my luggage, I was also struck by how many staff had learned basic Mandarin in order to cater to the Chinese businessmen who were sharing the lounge with me.
