Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the visit to the Panama Canal was like an immersion into the recent past where technology and a pioneering spirit shaped a new, industrialized world. There are plenty of fascinating books and documentary videos out there, describing the effort in building the canal. Armed with such knowledge, I went to Panama City to visit the region. As my plane approached the Panama City airport, I was surprised to see a scenic city skyline on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
