The Culture Trip

I am very excited to have been asked to write articles about culture in Panama by renowned Art/Culture/Travel website The Culture Trip! I plan to start later this month with a review of the Paul Gauguin exhibition currently at the Canal Museum.

Paul Gauguin – The Dream of Panama

Gauguin actually spent time in Panama on his way to Tahiti, I believe on Isla Taboga, and apparently even worked on the construction of the canal! So, although he was a French painter, he has a lot to do with this place in which I am lucky enough to live. I am looking forward to finding out more about his time here, and I’m hoping he left some paintings of Panama behind him!

Anyway, The Culture Trip website is really beautiful, and they have been kind enough to put my blog on their Panama page, so please check it out! Also, in the news feed section, there is a translation I did from Spanish to English for Global Voices in the ticker! It really is a small world, and my worlds of translation and blogging are definitely overlapping more than I envisaged in the beginning.

  1. Hi Jane,

    How wonderful! I love that you are going to be writing about culture in Panama. I love all of the good things you are doing. I’m also excited that there will be Paul Gauguin show in Panama. I love French artists and have a soft spot for Panama, so its a beautiful coupling.

    So happy for you,

    1. Hi Sally,
      Thanks so much for your extremely kind words! It is exciting but also kind of daunting, to be honest! 🙂 In the middle of writing about him and his Panama connections at the moment. I hope to be finished next week sometime, then I will post a link here.
