Siesta Time

It seems like every time I go to the park I run across someone stretched out on one of the benches taking a nap.  One of the workers repairing the road in front of the park laid done his shovel, walked over to the closest bench, took his hard hat off, laid down and drifted off into la-la land.  I guess that explains why the roads here in Panama are in such bad shape. Sweet dreams are made of this…

Festival Abierto

Festival Abierto is a activity that is held every year in Parque Omar.  It was created to promote awareness of our fragile environment and how we have an impact on our surroundings. We all have the power to initiate actions that can generate great changes in our society. Many local and international artists worked to create different art pieces to promote cultural awareness.  Here are just a few samples.

San Lorenzo

The fort of San Lorenzo in the province of Colon was built in the late 16th century by the Spanish.  It is located at the northwestern entrance to the Panama Canal. If you are a history buff this is definitely a place you should put on your “to do” list while you are visiting Panama.  If you are not into history, visit it anyway because the view will take your breath away.

 

 

Wilbur…

“How many people keep pigs as pets?”  This was the question that came to my mind when I came across this interesting scene.  The name Wilbur immediately came to mind and snatches of the novel “Charlotte’s Web” came creeping into my head.  “I wonder how much money it takes to feed a pig that size?”, was my next question.  Judging by the girth of this little piggy, I would say more than I am willing to spend.
