When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"The locals work hard and have lots of festivals. They honor the old folks, thier heritage, and way of life. They take time for coffee, for conversation. They are more then willing to show you and teach you and help you to find your place in their society.

Everyone says hello, waves, nods, gives recognition, an old fashioned thing that I missed in the U.S," commented one expat who made the move to Boquete, Panama.
