We could have taken pictures of people on the beach, or recorded some of the music from the all-night parties. So far, however, the application has not been developed to fully convey the sense of imbibing copious amounts of rum over the Internet. The November 3 Independence Day and November 4 Flag Day holidays are celebrated in many ways, but above all by parades in which people pay respects to this little country of ours. On Independence Day a tropical storm system lingered over Panama, drenching the parades and in some places flooding people out of their homes. The weather got better the next day.
