IrisI am an expatriate.
I am Canadian, and I am now living in Panama. I am currently in Pedasi.
My spouse and I moved to Panama in November 2012. Our house is completed and we settled in on January 1, 2013. Our two cats are with us, and we are steadily making new friends with future neighbours and locals. As retirees, we have begun applying for a "pensionado" visa and have a bilingual lawyer. My book, "Panama? Why Panama?" covers the highs and lows of our experience to date...the details, the complications, the documentation and the frustration of making an international move. I blog on the experience of living in a new culture with a new language and the adjustments in thinking and living that are necessary. I learn new words, new ways of acting, gain more information daily, and the learning curve, tho' steep, is exciting and very interesting.
I can speak English, French, some Spanish
My birthday is on 28 April
ballroom dancing, crosswords, dance, decor, jigsaws, knitting, puzzles, theatre, walking
