Life on Top in Panama
The country of Panama is pretty synonymous with its Canal. think of Panama and you probably first think of the ships passing through from one ocean to the other. Water rules the country. Fish is a large staple of the diet. On Good Friday, water looms even larger as thousands forego meat and ingest fish. While water and thus that below is of the utmost importance in Panama, the skies loom large as skyscrapers are taking over and you are always taking a look up towards the sky.
You eyes are always drawn up as you squint into the sun trying to decipher what is the shape of that to come.
The bright colors build upon the top of the current buildings and form new shapes in the sky.
It is not just the newly built skyscrapers that guide your eyes to the top. The many churches that dot the landscape also exhort you to focus to what lies at the top. Here the statue stands tall, high above, with arms spread wide calling you up forth.
Nature also drives one’s eyes up above so that one may wonder and be in awe of the ecosystem that abounds.
Here is a statue paying homage to the nature to be found in the country.
Boats abound to draw one’s eyes back down.
