Where I stayed
What I did
It’s extremely exciting to be out of the country to learn more about our wonderful country! Here in Panama, it’s warm, beautiful, and extremely EXCITING! I have never been out of the country in my life before - this experience is absolutely stunning and I’m truly grateful for this! We’ve come here to explore and learn about the Panama Canal Treaty that Jimmy Carter took part of.
There were actually two treaties grouped together and known as the Torrijos-Carter Treaties - named after the President and Panama’s National Guard Commander, General Omar Torrijos. The first treaty was titled the Treaty Concerning the Permanent Neutrality and Operation of the Panama Canal and allowed the United States the right to defend the canal from any outside threats that may have interfered with its neutral service to ships all around the world
I can feel a lot of positive energy radiating from this place - there is happiness around every corner. The people on the streets and in the shops are full of life. Everybody seems to have a smell on their face and laugh in their voice!
I believe that Obama or Romney should keep this peace. We don’t exactly need the Panama Canal - we’ve been doing okay without it for thirteen years now. I also would advise them to take in Panama as an ally because we could use all the help we can get. But now it’s getting late and we must be off! See you at the next stop.
