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!

hee hee hee

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 apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
