Living in Canada, we experience a plethora of awesome environments, from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Lakes, and plenty of Mother Nature’s mood swings in between. But there are certain limitations in our fair country, for better and for worse. For instance, there are no Canadians living in any modern metropolitan centers who must access a canoe to travel to another part of their neighborhood! Nor are there many scenes reminiscent of a Disney movie excursion into an exotic new world, rich in ancestral heritage and devoid of incessant, complicated technological “necessities”. This is the final Panama video of Roe, Sarah and Addie, the three travellers documenting their insights and experiences for the watchers of Travel Basecamp.
As our hosts travel to another side of Panama, which is the polar opposite of the new age discotheque and resort location, they begin to see the original world from which the modern one emerged. The Enberra People of Parara Puru, Panana live, love, dance, play, eat, sleep and breathe as close to the essence of Mother Nature as a culture of human beings can. Every day of their life seems to be like a camping trip!

And they are home to many of [the citizens].” But imagine if you had to take a “piragua” (a slender canoe-type boat with a motor) to visit your aunts, uncles and cousins – how weird would that be? Well, there are few places in Canada that require such a commitment to community. Meanwhile, in Panama, individuals build houses together, help the growth of other families, cook communally, as well as partake in many other domestic duties as a group.
