The Panamanians keep to themselves. They are very exclusive. But while they’re keeping everyone out, they are actually locking themselves inside. The world has changed faster than Panama knows. As their society continues to be confined, Panama has fallen behind in culture, art & education. The wealth distribution is unequal. The corporate corruption goes unchecked. The politicians are criminals. The police run the entire city. Panamanians do not like tourists. And especially do not like Americans. They will be nice and friendly and smile when they want something from you such as money.
That being said, Jedi Rich is family are no exception. Jedi Rich’s family on his mother’s side have never accepted him primarily because he was, to use his cousin’s worlds “looks too mich like Ricky Schroeder.”
That feels good to get off my chest. And it feels good to be back in the U.S.A.
