Saturday two events were held at San Cristóbal: a Tómbola, or raffle, to raise money for the expenses of Panamá Metro during the Diocesan Convention next month (Panamá Metro is hosting) and a Cook-out to raise money for San Cristóbal's Rectory Restoration Fund (the fund paying for the refurbishing of the former rectory into a parish hall). We had all the usual foods: sous, fry-fish and cucu, chicken and cucu, rice, Padre's Killa Chili con carne, empanadas de carne o pollo o bacalao, and, always the most popular item,
The tómbola tickets were only $1.00 each for the chance to win a large basket of groceries or a basket of cleaning supplies. We didn't hang around for the tómbola but since I haven't been contacted I'm pretty sure I didn't win. Here are photos.

Later that afternoon the Lovely Mona and I were in Gamboa. She took these photos of hormigas (leaf-cutter ants, in this case) and uno ñeque (which is called agouti in English).
