Really don't want to sound ignorant but I am a mixed white and african-american young woman who will be coming to PCB this summer? I am definitely not a "black-pride" type for I believe all are created equal however I have heard that blacks are quite the minority and it may even be unusual to see blacks hanging out I can hang and conversate with people of all backgrounds so this doesn't bother me..

Panama City Beach Hotels and Places to Stay
Shannon Cox, who teaches Spanish, helped arrange the May trip. She said the journey had a two-fold purpose. Afro-Panamanians are mainly the descendants of slaves and Blacks from nearby countries, and tend to live in Panama City, the largest city in the country, in addition to towns and villages along the Atlantic Ocean. Afro-Panamanian were the main workers on the Panama Canal, the artificial waterway that opened in that cuts through the Isthmus of Panama for 48 miles, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Afro-Panamanians are Panamanians of African descent. The Afro-Panamanian population can be mainly broken into one of two categories "Afro-Colonials", Afro-Panamanians descended from slaves brought to Panama during the colonial period, and "Afro-Antilleans," West Indian immigrant-descendants with origins in Trinidad , Martinique , Guadeloupe , Dominica , Grenada , Haiti , Barbados and Jamaica , whose ancestors were brought in to build the Panama Canal. Panama was a very important territory because it had the shortest route from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Goods were taken from ports in Portobelo and Nombre de Dios , transported overland to ports in Panama City and reboarded on ships headed to South America. Initially, Indian labor was used. Due to abuse and disease, the Indian population was decimated.
By Tarik Pierce , Expatkings. I went home every night trying to figure out a way to get out of my job and my environment. It just so happened that God sent me a struck of luck when I needed it the most. Jetblue was advertising an all-you-can-fly promotion for exactly 1 month. I took a chance and bought the Jetblue pass. The next week at work, I quit my job, moved out of my fancy upscale apartment and sold my car. I heard some nice things about Costa Rica so I decided it would be my first trip as an adult overseas.
