Special supplements in this coming issue including one on Santa Catalina, surf central here in Panama. Also in the pipeline for Austin is a restaurant guide/top 10 that will be out later in the year.
In the last hour it is our weekly visit from Yoly de Sedas. This week she comes armed with some energy bars which (don’t tell anyone) were delicious. Also we touch on keeping a balance in your gut, there is so much that can affect the delicate balance and we take a look at the best ways to keep healthy.
