Thank goodness for the Hepline

 Well thank goodness for your Helpline as finally at 7:30pm last night the Hydro crews showed up to hopefully fix the line. They were excellent as they gave them directions and kept us updated. You have an excellent, much needed service and we both thank you and your staff. Anyone here in Panama MUST enlist as it is impossible here without them.
