2010 Panama

Panama City, Colon, Pacific & Atlantic coast, Darién Gap, Yaviza

The little villages along the Panama Canal are completely untouched. People here work all for the Canal. The Darien Gap, a muddy Isthmus between Panama and Colombia, is called one of the most dangerous places on earth. It is a drug and people trafficking route, hiding in the dense, uninhabited jungle.

Embera Indians know their way through the jungle, they sell their knowledge. With a stick and the juice from the Jagua fruit, they gave me a protective tattoo.
