It’s that time again: time to have a live conversation about Panama! Can you believe been TWO YEARS since I did an interview about the Panama Gringo Guide? Yikes!
And in that past interview (which you can see here), I was still using my prior pseudonym (Elizabeth Vance) for privacy reasons, so you didn’t even get to see me!
A Live Conversation about Panama with Author JuliAnne Murphy
So, yes, I’m a bit overdue in getting this updated interview out on the wire. The past two years have meant lots of changes both for the country of Panama, and for me, personally and as the author of The Gringo Guide to Panama book (and blog) series.
On the country end of things, before this year, no one had ever heard of now well-known phrases like ‘Panama Papers’ and the ‘Panama Waked money laundering scandal’.
For me personally (and a much happier note), both my books, The Gringo Guide to Panama: What to Know Before You Go, and The Gringo Guide to Panama: More to Know Before You Go, were updated earlier this year – in April 2016 – so rest assured that you are getting accurate, timely information about Panama when you purchase them. 🙂
As a new expat to Panama, or as someone considering a move to Panama, would it be helpful to you to hear from someone like me, who lived in Panama for eight years?
What will you learn in this live conversation with me about Panama?
- What makes The Gringo Guide to Panama books unique?
- Why do I write about Panama?
- What is the best part of being an expat?
- What is the most challenging thing about expat life?
- How did living in Panama change my life?
And, there’s much more…
Finally, thank you for bearing with the internet speed in Costa Rica – which caused our interview to skip and jump a bit here and there. That’s something we don’t have to worry about much up North these days (though I do talk about it in a recent post.)
Lastly, I continue to appreciate your interest in my writing about Panama, and my books about Panama (Click here for Book 1).
This Panama journey for me – just under eight years until I departed in early 2016 – has been an incredible one, and one that changed my life forever. I’m honored to share snapshots of it with you in conversations like these.
Finally, Pura Vida, mae! (I have relocated to Costa Rica, which you’ll hear about in the interview…) And you can also learn what Pura Vida means, as well.
