Quirky Living Note: We all know what the yellow paint is for on a street corner. But here in Panama it surely does not mean “no parking”. It apparently means that it is reserved for a car wash. You will see on many busy corners (and our corner on Via Argentina is one hummer of a busy corner) a man sitting at the corner with a plastic bucket and some bottles and rags. You just drive up, park on the corner in the yellow zone, go have coffee at a café, and have your car washed. It is so practical I don’t understand why this free enterprise opportunity has not caught on in the United States!
