I am very excited to have been asked to write articles about culture in Panama by renowned Art/Culture/Travel website The Culture Trip! I plan to start later this month with a review of the Paul Gauguin exhibition currently at the Canal Museum.
Gauguin actually spent time in Panama on his way to Tahiti, I believe on Isla Taboga, and apparently even worked on the construction of the canal! So, although he was a French painter, he has a lot to do with this place in which I am lucky enough to live. I am looking forward to finding out more about his time here, and I’m hoping he left some paintings of Panama behind him!
Anyway, The Culture Trip website is really beautiful, and they have been kind enough to put my blog on their Panama page, so please check it out! Also, in the news feed section, there is a translation I did from Spanish to English for Global Voices in the ticker! It really is a small world, and my worlds of translation and blogging are definitely overlapping more than I envisaged in the beginning.
