Before the Panama Canal was constructed Nicaragua and Mexico were two other options.
This is an 1895 cartoon depicting the U.S. action to build the Nicaraguan Canal.
Shout out Minneapolis!
This is the Tehuantepec Isthmus that was also considered a site for building the canal.

Pretty much everyone through with finals, except ME, of course...not funny. We got Kelsey and Danez finishin up tomorrow actually and I would be finishin up Wednesday BUT we finna get the opportunity to go work with one of the indigenous groups the Embera. Philly said we gon perform or do a lil something something. We'll see what goes down. I talked to my profe and told him about it and Imma be taking my exam this Friday. The foto above is just one I snatched of the world wide web of three Embera childrens. This indigenous group is the largest in population of the 5 groups here en Panama.

And if you ever watched MTV Exiled - the show where they take the kids from Sweet Sixteen and try and send em, change em, brake em, watever, in another culture....This Cher from episode 9. She was placed right here en Panama with the Embera. We watched it. It was weird. But all the Exiled shows are weird because they only stay a week and we don't think that's enough time to "change" somebody.

Got you after the trip.

we goin home...



...see you soon

21 years ago on this day of December the 3rd something so beautiful was born that it had to be kept secret. The brightest intellectuals of the time decided to take the "beauty" and let it live within a human being. This has been a great honor for humans everywhere. For this reason, on this day, it is important that we take time to acknowledge the human form that this exuberant light has taken...
we love you
we miss you
we apreciate you on this day and all days
hope your day was absulutely brilliant
