About the Book
Why is Panama so colorful? That was a question I found myself often asking. The color is in the oddest of places. Sometimes it's in the local markets. Sometimes it is a particular time of the day. What do these colors mean? I inexplicably found myself working in color when it seemed to bonk me over the head.
