The usual trouble explaining where the Isle of Man is today, this time at the local DHL office. I am thinking of a new set of business cards with just a map of the British Isles with a large arrow pointing to the Isle of Man. My (Panamanian) wife says that, by contrast, everyone knows where Panama is – this I disagree with. Everyone may have heard of the Panama Canal, but I think many would struggle to say exactly where it is.
In other news, a Panamanian drugs gang leader, Jorge Rubén Camargo Clark (aka ‘Cholo Chorrillo’) has been extradited from Costa Rica to the US to face drugs charges. He had been arrested in Costa Rica on 11 February. He is the alleged leader of ‘Baghdad’, one of Panama’s most dangerous criminal groups, and is said to have been with his wife at the time of his arrest. In Panama, he is also wanted for alleged commidrug trafficking and money laundering, among other crimes.
