Driving through the Panama Countryside

We went from David to the Las Olas Beach Resort to spend some time at the beach. It’s a beautiful drive. I thought I’d share some photos and a little look at Panamanian life.

We passed many beautiful fields and amazing trees. It’s interesting to see the Panamanian homes too. Most are so small, but they often have many flowers in the yard and food gardens. We saw many people relaxing in hammocks and visiting others in their yards and patios. We waved and greeted people and they always waved, smiled, and greeted us in return. Life may look modest to us, but it feels friendly and happy. It makes you think about what really is important.

    We saw many of the same houses and the funeral home. Also saw many children playing and riding bikes. I’ve seen many posts about trash, but our experience has been that there is no trash in the countryside.

      Yes, kids playing, people walking, dogs and chickens running around, lots of life in the country. We see more trash in the city (David). Sometimes people dump it in an empty spot or don’t pick up after themselves but you’re right. It’s unusual to see trash in the countryside.

    I’d forgotten how lush the Interior was, because all I get are photos/articles from Panama City, where my parents still live. Great photos!
