When I was visiting Panama recently I took special notice of the new road construction that had already begun when I moved back to the United States. When I still lived in Panama I was impressed at how quickly the road construction was moving along. But on my return I was amazed at some of the things that were NOT completed. The photo will also explain why most of the locals choose to not drive at night. Apparently they sometimes do things in a different order in other countries… like moving power poles.
We also took a trip with friends one day to a small town on the opposite side of Volcan Baru. I was able to stop and take a photo to show “The Old and The New” road. Until this new road was built the only way to cross this particular river was on foot.
