Mensagem:  Thanks!  Just moved to Panama, so I have been away from the Internet for a while.  I am living in the province of Chiriqui, near the border with Costa Rica and about an hour by bus from the city of David.  Lots of foreigners here. maybe 10% of the population.  Yes, I have met a Brazilian here.

Both words have interesting meanings completely unrelated to the question.

A government agency can condemn a house, mine, building, bridge, etc. if it believes it is unsafe to use.

A man of his convictions is a man of principles, someone with a sense of honor and obligation to others.

Weird, huh?
