One of the outstanding characteristics of the campus of the University of Panama is the abundance of flowers, well-manicured landscaping and tropical trees. This is an ideal spot to promote learning which should be followed by other universities in Panama.
I’m sick and tired of observing the out-of-control building trend in Panama which destroys everything within its path. The former Panama Canal Zone is slowly being transformed into a concrete jungle, jeopardizing the rainfall needed for the Panama Canal. I feel our government officials don’t understand that trees and vegetation are needed for a balanced urban growth. I’m glad the University of Panama has been protected from this widespread destruction and remains a change of scenery from the urban grid.
Below are several pictures of beautiful tropical trees which still populate the University of Panama campus. Here we go.
With this post I reach the end of my exciting adventure through the roads and back roads of the University of Panama at the request of a loyal reader and commentator of Lingua Franca. I hope he’s satisfied with the pictures and text rendered. If you’re a college student, these posts and images will give you a pretty good idea of how our main public university looks like.
Tomorrow I will move on to other subjects about this beautiful piece of land called Panama. Until then, Good Day.
