Dining Under The Huts

  1. Morning!
    Amador Causeway is the most amazing transformation in Panama for me.

    I lived on “Flamingo Island” as we mistakenly called it in the 1970s, we swam inside the shark net at the beach club, and a friend caught a 17 foot shark in the bay between our island and “Pelican Island”. Isla Perico was a US Navy radar installation. My friends and I hiked/climbed around Flamingo Island at sea level several times and we explored all the tunneling built into the island’s solid rock. There was a huge freight elevator through the center of the island to haul equipment/shells/gun powder to the top where 3 levels of tunnels provided storage.

    The causeway was a narrow, uneven, treacherous road even on good days, at night during the stormy season it was downright scary to drive.

    If anyone ever had doubts about Panama’s future, before and after photos of the causeway would be all the evidence one would need.

  2. Hi Jim and Nena:

    The islands are still called Perico, Flamingo and Naos. It’s a tourist’s paradise. You name it, they’ve got it.

    Amador Causeway reminds me of Monaco and its large fleet of expensive white yachts. A place for the rich and famous.

    Yep, Panama is doing fine, not matter what they say.

    Thanks for your comments. I love them. Keep them coming.
