Metro Stations in Panama City, Panama


The Metro of Panama City, Panama was inaugurated on April 6, 2014.  It will be one of the greatest contributions of the Administration of Ricardo Martinelli.  Even as we speak, two more branches are being planned and designed to complete the project connecting the metropolis to the North, West and East.

If you search for the Panama Metro on Lingua Franca’s search engine you will find several blog posts about the construction of this monumental public mass transportation work.  Today I’ve published several pictures of the Panama Metro stations.  These shots were taken about two weeks ago.  It will the last blog post of 2014.

I thought it would be a tribute to this accomplishment by saying Good Bye to 2014 with pictures of the Metro’s stations.  Without further ado, here we go. (Kindly click on images to enlarge them.)

It was a fun and historial ride specially made for my digital journal. You already know how proud I feel about this magnificent infrastructure in our country. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

The Panama Metro has a special significance for me.  I took the time to photograph different stages of its construction; from the early removal of dirt to the actual operation of the railway.  It’s difficult to express in words what this subway means to me and to most if not all Panamanians.  Good Day.

  1. Morning Desley,

    So nice to write to you during the last day of the year. There’s a certain nostalgia on a day like this. Tomorrow will be a brand new slate to write the journal of our lives.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed my pictures. As you know you are a great reference to follow.

    Happy New Year to you my dear Desley and to all your loved ones wherever they might be.

    Cheers,

    Omar.-
