WTW, Welcome to Wednesday. Today we are going to take a look at the mosquito and some interesting facts… Things like the town in Canada that has a huge statue with a 15ft wingspan of a mosquito and did you know that when a mosquito is feeding and it is full a signal is sent to stop if taking more blood, disable it and it will feed until it explodes!!
Joining me in the second hour is Austin Hess and we will be talking about his travels around Panama and what to expect in the upcoming issue of the “Panama Good Times.” I know that this weekend he is off to Boquete for coffee tasting and is taking Carlos Mata our very own wine expert, who will by the way be with us a week from Friday.
And what would a Wednesday be without the Canada report from Michael Droulliard. If you missed it, catch it here.
