Christmas in Panama is a very important family event. Families celebrate Christmas Eve at home together with their children. Presents are always present, pardon for the unintended pun. The houses are full of twinkling lights, Christmas carols vibrate throughout the neighborhood and there is lots of food.
For us Christmas is not complete without a delicious fruit cake. This year my wife decided to bake one instead of buying it at PriceCostco as she did last year. As you probably know, my wife is the best cook in town. I’m a lucky man with a most satisfied stomach. On several instances I have published snapshots of her finger-licking dishes. This time I will include a couple of pictures of a Christmas fruit cake. Today I will cut the cake during lunch time. Can’t wait. Here we go.
Merry Christmas to all the readers of Lingua Franca. 2014 was a memorable year. I hope the trend continues in the upcoming year 2015. “Champagne wishes and caviar dreams” as Robin Leach used to say at the end of his popular television episodes. Good Day.
