I just saw a photo that literally took my breath away. It was taken near Ojo de Agua, Panama, and showed slightly treed land sloping down to the Pacific Ocean in the distance. It was absolutely gorgeous. It was posted on a website by a developer who is putting in a gated community which is obviously designed to appeal to expats. And while the view was absolutely to die for, I can’t see myself living in that sort of community completely divorced from the lives of the people nearby.
Would love to hear from folks who have lived on both sides of the gate, so to speak, both within such a gated community, and also out in the local community.
