Vice President Juan Carlos Varela

Vice President Juan Carlos Varela

Vice President Juan Carlos Varela and ME!

Accessibility.  That’s what is really great about Panama.  It is so easy to just meet random people. And sometimes that random person is quite famous.

Insert current Panamanian Vice President Juan Carlos Varela.  Now in all honesty, I had no idea who he was until a friend of mine pointed him out and insisted I have my photo taken with him. I thought, “sure why not, it will be interesting for the website.”

There was no security, no perimeter or secret service, nothing.  He was walking around, meeting and talking to people like a regular guy.

You never know what will happen or who you’ll meet next on the streets of Panama! :-)
