WHY I MISS PANAMA?


I miss Panama, because it is totally different to The United States of America (food, culture, traditions, holidays, music etc.). We all always were together in my Mon's house. That's the epicenter of everything in our family. I just lived with my Mon is Panama, but every day everybody came over after their jobs to stay for a while. Sometimes we discussed or fought verbally between each other when someone disagreed with another about anything. At the end of the day, all was peace and the disagreement left in the past.

The most important thing in our family, is always to keep us together in any good or bad circumstance. We spent together all our birthdays and holidays, until the death separated us.

I really miss them so much, more than any other thing in my life. Getting together with your family and laughing, talking, watching TV, eating or simply doing activities together is just the best ever.

I know what it is to miss a family member like my mom or your whole family. I have been living in the United States since the year 2000 and although I miss the Island (PR) a lot, what I miss the most is my 'familia'.
