Hi! I am so proud to be a black afrodecendant from Panamá, Here is the best place to live and to remember our ancestors, due to the fact that we had a lot of people from others country first to build the canal and to built also the railroad, so we believe that every year on May 30th we celebrates our ancestors ethnicity heritage.
