So do I. They just happened to be Panamanian lawyers and businesspeople the last time around, rather than Panamanians living on $0.02 a day.
PTY is the only city in Central America where I would (am, actually) consider setting up a presence for my immigration practice. I've though on all my visits there that it would be a very livable place. I can't imagine living in Guatemala City or Tegucigalpa. Living in San Jose would be like living in Cleveland - probably not fatal, but somewhere at the bottom of the C-list. Panama City is international, it has a lot of commerce, good nightlife, excellent dining, and good connections from the airport. Probably half to the people in Panama live in or nearby the city, so you can't say that it's the exception to the rule for Panamanians.
And it sure as hell isn't David. This is a good thing.
