"Yesterday in the early afternoon I rented a bicycle for a few hours and peddled up to Fort Lorenzo, an old Spanish fort, protecting the entrance to the Chagres river, which was in the Spanish years an important river getting inland. Nowadays the river is dammed after 5 miles, for the Panama canal.", photo by S/V Mundinho 2012, Panama
