Here we are, about to board an early morning tender. Cruise ships anchor out in the ocean, since it’s too shallow to dock anywhere in Panama City.
The tender brought us to the Amador Causeway, the 6-kilometer Pacific breakwater that was built when the Canal was dug.
Brand new biking and walking paths line the whole route. The causeway connects the four small Causeway Islands with the mainland.
Our goal today was to walk all the way to the Biomuseo.
We were accompanied along the way by birds with an amazing ability to sound like cell phone beeps!
And the ever-present buzzards
This one couldn’t rip open a floating garbage bag – must be a Hefty bag.
The museum’s focus is to tell the story of “How Panama Changed the World”.
Those vibrantly colored roof panels cover lots of open space.
Besides the eight galleries the open ground floor panels tell the story of the origin of the Panamanian isthmus and its gigantic impact on the planet’s biodiversity.
We needed some time in the air-conditioned coffee shop before setting off on our walk back to the tender pier.
Hästa’s bright color fits right in with Ghery’s vision!
Anyone know what kind of tree this is?
So far, far away on a hot, hot day!
