Faces of Panama

NativeGirl

This week’s adventures included an amazing and eventful road trip from Coronado to Boquete, Las Olas and Boca Chica, Panama. I enjoyed taking these candid shots of the native people of Panama along the way. The girl in the photo above, for example,  lived in a house along the road within the hills of Boquete. If she was to step out her back door, however, the steepness of the mountainous drop was treacherous!

Women and girls of native tribes all wear tribal dress, while the men and boys dress more ‘typically’. Generally speaking, they are very kind, humble people, living off their land. It is like a journey back in time observing how live.
