Panama! パナマ!

”After passing through Panama Canal, we arrived at Balboa. The day started terribly with a call from a student at 6am, and my plan to de-stress by sleep was destroyed.... This is why especially walking in the jungle was so refreshing. Despite the heavy rain, I enjoyed walking in the tropical environment. 


As we went to the mall afterwards I noticed how much U.S. influence there was. I also learned that it was as late as 1999 that Panama Canal became Panama's, not the U.S.'s property. 
The city looked very poor, although Panama is now becoming one of the wealthier countries in Central America. "
