Canada Day party in Panama

 July 1, 2010 Farallon, Panama - Looked a lot like Canada to me!

by Roberto Chocolaté

A hundred plus Canadians jammed Woody's Beach Bar and Grill in Farallon, Panama last night to celebrate Canada Day in the true south, strong and free.

Your intrepid reporter was on hand to capture the moments and even played DJ for an enthusiastic crowd.




More than a few ice cold beers were consumed, and a few bottles of wine I recall (vaguely). Many a loyal lobster gave their lives last night so that hungry Canucks could be happy. Poutine, that gastronomic cholesterol bomb courtesy of Quebec cuisine was liberally consumed.

Most danced the calories off to the swinging fifties and sixties tunes expertly spun by yours truly, while others cavorted on the beach under perfect skies as fireworks lit up the night.

It was a moving moment when the entire crowd erupted into an impromptu chorus of 'Oh Canada'. Some even remembered the French versus.

Cheers rang out and the party kicked into even higher gear with the playing of our other National Anthem, The 'Hockey Night in Canada' theme song.

You couldn't find a nicer group of people - open, friendly and happy. It reminded me of what I like best about Canada - the people. Even the Americans that managed to sneak in were made to feel at home. 

The guests of honour were Kim & Shawn DeSouza, our newlyweds who had just gotten married the day before just down the beach at The Decameron Beach Resort. Their friends and family joined them to help celebrate their nuptials, making this a very special Canada Day celebration.

The good news is, he will never forget his anniversary! And for one special night, in the jungles of Panama, we were all transported back home.
