Adventures in Panamaland - A Pictorial Pause (2)



Hola amigos! We're often on the go here in Panama, driving one way or the other on the Pan Americana Highway to small towns to shop, have dinner, do some sightseeing and so on. The other day I even got my hair cut about 15 kilometres down the highway in Coronado - $8.65! When we drive I'm usually in the shotgun seat, so I take lots of pictures...of signs...sometimes with scantily clad women...










OK, that last one wasn't at the edge of the road. But it's one of my favourite spots...the edge of the ocean. My month in Panama's quickly drawing to a close. Be sure to check out my last instalment of my Adventures in Panamaland this Tuesday.

I'm guessing they don't have a lot of billboards with scantily clothed young ladies in Canada...

Enjoy your last few days!

Thanks for taking us all along with you on your fantastic vacation, Dufe. All that sunshine and sandy beach is just what I needed to combat the winter here. Enjoy the rest of your stay. Oh, and take lots more photos.

I like the Jesús es el señor. I think you should put that accent of the U's in Dúfús. After a month in Panama, you should be a little more latino, dontchya think?

Boom Boom: Certainly not as many as they do here. The billboards here are mostly selling a lifestyle and are associated with resorts and hotels. It's quite scenic actually!

Leeuna: Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed my little tour. I know I certainly have. More photos? I've already taken close to 800! The canal, Panama City, the billboards, the beach, the resort, the villages, the people - no shortage of subjects.

So much for the beach bar.

Soak up all the warmth you can with your few days left - February is just around the corner.

Nickt: Si. Buenos nachos!

00dozo: I'll soon be saying adios to the beach bar. A week in Orlando with temperatures in the low 20s C will help slide me into the minus teens back home...at least I'm thinking so.

Not sure if billboard pictures of scantily clad women count as naughty...

Where are the scantily clad women? Yeesh, you see more of Snooki in the first two minutes of Jersey Shore!

Kidding! Actually, I'm not, but I do see you have a keen eye for the broads, erm, I mean board ladies.

Ahem.

Venom: Oh no, not naughty. Just interesting.

Quirks: You've come up with a new name for billboard ladies,,,billbroads. Love it.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post... The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in. Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All . (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song) Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress... I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
