This is the creed of Panamanian tourism. Resorts, resorts, and the cars and buses that bring the people to the resorts. But those upright shafts to boredom have nothing for me. I walked by them for kicks tonight, and peered into the White Man bars. They were smiling and laughing pasted on laughs with their white faces, but they did not seem to be having any fun. In fact, they seemed rather bored as they would walk out of their expensive bars and stiffly stare out to sea. I cocked my head and walked back to the poor man´s beach with the black people who are camping out and listening to loud music and sancing and really having fun.
Low Density, High Income Tourism is boring.
