In the second hour this morning we get off to a good relaxing start as we welcome Jose and Clarissa from the Mee Spa at the Yoo Building. A new project concentrating on making us feel and look better, with relaxing and deep tissue massaging, manicure and pedicure, everything for that Mee time.
In the last hour today we get together with Nailasob Alfaro, starting tomorrow is the IV Festival de Artes Dule. Nailasob runs us through the weeks events which culminate on Saturday the 13th at the City of Knowledge. A great event to help us be more aware of the beauty of Panama’s indigenous population.
