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.

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…
