Snapshots of Panama...

A brief stop in Panama (in transit to Bolivia) allowed me to visit this charming nation that bridges Central and South America (connecting Costa Rica and Colombia). From pirate raids to Jesuit missions, smiling locals are eager - and proud - to share their rich historical past with all who visit. I witnessed the crowded concrete jungle of downtown Panama, the approaching cargo ships of the Panama Canal, and the picturesque coastlines and beaches of Calzada de Amador. Enjoy the few pics below!

Love your pix of Panama. I went through the canal once on a cruise, but we were not allowed to go onshore.

One of the cabin boys had hoped for a stop so he could visit his family. He had to settle for a view of them as the ship passed under the first bridge. They all waved frantically.
