Quirky Living Note: In many foreign countries you are often accosted, when you are stopped at an intersection, with the young kids trying to wash (or smear) your windshield. Here in Panama, the middle of the street vendors, have put a new twist on the products they are selling. You frequently see young men passing between the lanes of traffic with pine tree car fresheners and little decals with the Virgin Mary inside a heart. You see these decals on the back of many cars. With the driving tactics here you really do need some divine intervention.
