Phodographer Carolyn Lane in Chagres River National Park, Panama, Aug 2010

Just back from Panama! Official photographer for the US Embassy Miguel Moreno took this picture and accompanied Dog Meets World founder Carolyn to visit the Embera Drua Indians living in a village along the Chagres River. Before they started out they took and printed the first ever photo for the Anibal, driver of the motorized dug out canoe. At age 31 he was pleased to be given his first picture and had fun playing with Foto.
