To be more accurate in his role as Dolly's protector, Usher Raymond consulted Elijah Shaw, his longtime personal bodyguard.
Elijah, who spent most of his time keeping screaming fans away from location shoots, was dragged on set for multiple sessions of "what would you do if..." His name appears in the credits as "Personal Security."

Even people who have been birding Chiriqui for years can scrounge up a new bird when they up this way!
Besides straight up new birds, one of the highlights of going to Fortuna is getting to get better acquainted with birds that are seen less back in Boquete.
Panamanian culture is so rich, deep, and FUN, it’s a joy to experience while learning the Spanish language!
Here are the top 10 things to know about Panamanian culture for anyone who plans to learn Spanish in Panama: Panama is a huge melting pot of races, but in a very tiny space!
All the way back in May I was lucky enough to be invited along to hop in the Big Red Birding Bus (also known as the Birders Chariot for its high level of comfort in rough terrain) for two trips to bird the STRI station and the surrounding Fortuna area.
The bird watching, particularly what was accessible by fairly cheap cab rides and public transportation, was really what made it for me.The Spanish came and settled down in the first part of the 1500’s, growing the population and added a new race and culture to the mix. Panama in fact was always a place of transit as all the goods from the Western part of Central and South America would cross the isthmus before making their way to Europe.Being the crossroads of the Americas, the narrow Isthmus of Panama has always played a central role in the history of the world.Never having seem Usher and not being a fan of that kind of music I didn't bring that baggage with me when I watched it.I found the film to be formulaic, predictable escapist fun.
