This week, I have been working hard but have very little time to write. I did get a haircut and Christmas package which was great. Here a few pictures of Colon, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
|Colón (Spanish pronunciation: [koˈlon]) is a Panamanian city and seaport beside the Caribbean Sea, lying near the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal. It is the capital of Panama's Colón Province and has traditionally been known as Panama's second city.|
Like most of the Caribbean coast of Central America, Colón possesses an extremely wet tropical climate owing to the powerful, wet trade winds flowing onto high mountains throughout the year. Unlike most parts of this coast, however, February and March are sufficiently dry that Colón fits into the tropical monsoon climate category rather than a tropical rainforest climate as found in most Caribbean coastal areas. Nonetheless, the June to December period, with an average monthly rainfall of around 16.3 inches, is so wet that Colón rivals Honduras’ La Ceiba as the wettest sizable city in Central America.
