Remembering the friendly people of Panama - San Blas Islands
Unfortunately our time in Panama came to too abrupt end, nonetheless our key lasting impression of the country was of welcoming and friendly people wherever we went, quick to smile (and very tolerant of my poor Spanish language). This was especially appreciated when in the hospital!
Here are some images of the lives of the Gunas people in the San Blas islands; fishermen awaiting their licences and in action on the water, it appeared to us that some of their their homes are almost awash on very low coral atolls. Many of the men and women we met there were adorned with lots of gold jewellery - the area has a lot of alluvial gold in the rivers.
