Panama, Casco Viejo (Casco Antiguo) … San Felipe-
It is official, KLM is already flying back and forth on direct flights to Panama.
I just downloaded something called the timetable, where you can play around with the
dates and destinations and it´s quite fun. Europe used to be so far away! Remember
when poor Columbus had to spend months and months, almost ruin a country and loose
a lot of lives in the way just to get to Dominican Republic? Today, we are there in
less than 14 hours and hopefully no lives at steak.
But KLM isn´t the only “Dutch” around! Netherland´s most celebrated artist, Rembrandt
Harmenszoon van Rijn (better known as Rembrandt) will visit Panama and will stay
in Casco Viejo from April 17th to June 8th. He isn´t considered only one of the best
portrait painters of all time, but also a fantastic printmaker. And is this part of
his work that will be in exhibition at the Canal Museum at Casco Antiguo.
