Adventures in Panamaland - A Pictorial Pause


Before we carry on with updates about our ongoing adventures, I thought I'd share some pics that I couldn't post earlier. I hope you enjoy these, just a fraction of the pics I've taken so far.











Stay tuned for more "Adventures in Panamaland"!

Boom Boom: The more the merrier! Those fruity drinks with the little umbrellas are just waiting for you.

Great pics! That last one is absolutely gorgeous - the reflection kind of looks like a frozen lake with wispy snow.

00dozo: Frozen lake, snow? Brrr. It's one of the infinity/horizon pools here. At sunrise. Gorgeous, isn't it.

Those are really good. I really liked them all except the one with the flat stomach driving the golf-cart.

I hate her.

Can't say why, but I just do.

Yeah, those are pretty. If you like those great architecture, blue skies, gorgeous beaches and pretty people kind of photographs. And really, who likes those?
Dirty Butter said…
Do the beaches have black sand, or is it just the time of day?? Beautiful pics!!

Quirks, Quirks, Quirks now, now, that kid can't be much more than 16. My 11 year-old nephew took that pic. Good eye, eh?

Nicky: Yeah, you're right. But it's not a bad way to pass the day. It seems to be workin' for me.

DB: It depends on the time of day and the tide. If you get down past the brown sandy surface it can be black. I'm glad the pics convey a little taste of Panama. It's quite beautiful here.

Gorgeous photos Dufus! Wow! I had no idea it was that pretty!
nonamedufus said…
Linda: These pictures don't begin to convey the beauty of Panama and the contrasts that exist in the country: skyscrapers in Panama City, the poorer districts, the resorts and beaches, the jungles and so on. I'm in paradise. It'll me hard to return to snow and -8C weather!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
