Scanning the Metropolis

One of the attractions at the newly built Cinta Costera III are strategically located telescopes to view the surroundings of the strip up close.  The detail of the edifices is amazing.  It feels as if you could touch the buildings by stretching out your hands.  I’m sure this convenience will be appreciated by both domestic and foreign visitors alike.

Take a look at the telescopes of the Coastal Strip III in Panama City, Panama.  Here we go.

  1. What fun! I’ve rarely used such things, but we do have some down the coast at a wildlife refuge where the whooping cranes overwinter. It’s great entertainment, whether in the city or the country. And it’s really nice that they’ve made accomodation for children. Someone was thinking.

  2. Linda:

    I thought it was nice to include the children while designing the facilities of the site. Small details make great products. Apple is very good in doing this while designing their products.
