  1. Hola Omar,
    early morning in Panama is a magical time. Other cities seem to want to wake up and get going; the rush starts immediately. Panama seems to wake in stages, blinking, then stretching, yawning a bit, and finally sitting up in bed. Panama eases into each new day, very relaxing.

    Here in the US, we feel like we are being shot from a cannon during the working years. I am getting used to the Panamanian method in my retirement but it is taking years to do so.

    1. Hola Jim y Nena:

      Ditto that Jim. Life in the tropics is so tied up to the clock. “Cógelo suave” is a popular saying in this part of the world which in English means, “Take it easy”. Working for an American company, Texaco, I also acquired the lifestyle of “all work and no fun”. As a number man, distractions were very limited.

      After retiring, I learned how to take pictures and to blog, and the rest is history. Thus the existence of “Lingua Franca” with its daily photographs. I’m enjoying every second of this second and final stage in my life. It feel good! 🙂

  2. What a great series. The time before the sun breaks the horizon often is the most beautiful, just as the clouds after sunset can be far more appealing. You’ve captured the changing colors so well. It’s quite a show, no doubt about that.

  3. It is becoming a daily routine to wake up and run to the terrace to see how the sky looks like. Sometimes it is a masterpiece beautifully painted by Mother Nature. I plan to continue this practice. On certain days it really pays off. Like this one.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the colors of the sky. Thank you my dear friend.
