Michelle Obama Spending Extended Vacation At Oprah’s Maui Home

Yesterday we saw bomb sniffing dogs and Maui police in the bushes, Heather Long, the manager of nearby Grandmas Coffeehouse, told TheDC. Were very close to Oprahs property. Theyll probably walk up and down the road. Oprah frequents the coffee shop, said Long.We try not to make it a big deal. We try to treat her like shes another customer. I would die if I saw the first lady. Oprahs home, described as an ordinary little gray ranch has been transformed into the perfect 21st century farmhouse. The residence is located in a remote up-country region where the houses there face the ocean. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://dailycaller.com/2014/01/06/michelle-obama-spending-extended-vacation-at-oprahs-maui-home/

A Panama vacation offers a tropical paradise with an urban edge

In the countryside, lowland jungles feature their own tropical ecosystems, while the Chiriqui Highlands dense cloud forests offer a mystical, enchanted ambience. Meanwhile, the worlds second-largest extinct volcano, Valle de Anton, is resplendent with brilliantly hued flowers in the centre of its crater. Food enthusiasts will relish the local cuisine a blend of Spanish and Afro-Caribbean influences with fresh local fruit such as guava and papaya. Roadside stalls serve snacks like crunchy empanadas (meat-stuffed pastries) and Panamas national dish, sancocho , a hearty chicken stew with cilantro, corn and cassava. The country also boasts a wide and eclectic range of accommodations, from luxurious city hotels, complete with pampering spas, and amenity-packed all-inclusive resorts to wilderness lodges and charming rural B&Bs. With so much to offer, no wonder Panama dazzles newcomer visitors and turns them into repeat guests. Hotel highlights: Where to stay and play The all-inclusive Royal Decameron Golf, Beach, Resort & Villas Panama is located in Playa Blanca, one of Panamas sunniest areas. Boredom is not an option here with a vanilla-hued, two-kilometre stretch of beach, eight pools, 10 restaurants and 11 bars on-site. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.thestar.com/sponsored_sections/greatwintervacations/2014/01/06/a-panama-vacation-offers-a-tropical-paradise-with-an-urban-edge.html
