Venture Out into the Countryside

Once you have left the city, a whole different world will open up for you.  Although Panama is a tiny country compared to most, it has a rich, varied culture that is full of folklore and tradition.  This is a typical scene as you move out of the city and venture out into the countryside. This photo was taken in the province of Herrera.

Remnants of the Past

Every time I walk by the remnants of this building I can’t help but  imagine what it must have looked like in its heyday. I love the cobalt blue glass in the windows. Can you imagine the sun shining through this blue glass bathing the rooms in such rich color.  It must have been magnificent. Hopefully, someone will restore them to their original beauty.
