We have had the opportunity to visit Panama City to present at the 1st MareForum Conference, Panama: Singapore of the Western Hemisphere, just two days ahead of the official Panama Canal opening with the expanded locks. Never a person to meet a bit, a few lovely memories and pictures from Panama City with its rich history and amazing architecture.
