A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!

A bit of a whirlwind tour of Panama - an extended flight layover one might call it. But very lovely! The shock of a modern city, a trip on the canal and a long visit to the viewing platform for Miraflores locks, a few days of snorkeling, boats, hammocks, and sloth watching in Bocas del Toro, and a chance to see both the molas and the polleras proving once again that great textiles come from small places.

woven tightly enough to hold water
the polleras! and beautiful dancing as well
Panama Canal
I still think the way to go through is in a kayak...
Bridge of the Americas
Biomuseum - my favorite part was the lifesize model of a giant ground sloth
Breakfast in Bocas del Toro
It´s only a few minutes walk to town...
who said sloths sleep all the time?
I think I´ll miss this place
Panama Viejo - the old city ruins
molas! the abstract ones are my favorite
...but these are impressive too
Next time maybe I´ll stay here
