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!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
