Tocumen


Tocumen is a town in the Panama province of Panama. It is known for the Tocumen International Airport and is where Austin landed when he arrived in Panama on November 17th, 2009.

For those who remember the war in Panama (Operation Just Cause) in the late 80's, The Tocumen Airfield was a strategic objective during the war (http://www.specialoperations.com/Operations/Just_Cause/Operation_Profile.htm).  Austin mentioned that 21 years after the war, you could not see traces of the war as Panama has been rebuilt and is now a peaceful nation.

Nothing like a good 'ol American hamburger stand

Hopefully, Austin will give us his final impressions of La Chorrera, where he left, and his initial impressions of his new area in Tocumen.
