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.)
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.
