PanaRadio #1

Hola! Hello! Welcome to PanaRadio! Jim Ellinger’s 2005 TraveLog!

You’ve made it to this list because you have expressed interest in my work or travels. This list consists of mostly of family and friends from Austin, Texas, folks interested/involved in radio, co-ops, bamboo, int'l travel, humanitarian & development aid, etc. I will be sending stories from the region, oh, say, every few days. At least that’s the plan. As a courtesy to my dial up friends, I will not send too many JPEG images per email. I plan on posting pictures, intel reports, maps and stories on my travel website Thanks to Silona, Hunter and "The World’s Most Dangerous Blonde" for their assistance.

If, perchance, you do not want to be on this list, please just respond to this Eddress and “The World’s Most Dangerous Blonde” will drop you.

Possible subjects will include:
The Embara, Wounann and Kuna communities (3 of the 7 remaining tribes of the 150 there when Columbus...)
Radio as a tool of basic communication and survival (programming in three indigenous languages)
Will the Pan-American Highway ever really be completed?
How hard can it be to finish a lousy 52 miles of road? How much harm could it possibly cause?
Security. Traveling near the most dangerous area in the Americas; without KR&E, without malaria pills,
without “The World’s Most Dangerous Blonde” at my side. I have been getting some excellent intel on the
geo-pol sitch' in the region.
Traffic. You don't like the way we drive here?! Get off the sidewalk!!
Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). What’s in store for the poor…

Plus! More bird species than all of the US and Canada combined, bamboo, primates, exotic animal species galore, the world’s deadliest snake and even deadlier frog, snorkeling, volcano climbing, island hopping, shopping, and more! Oh, and the Panama Canal! And has anybody seen that rascal Panama Red?

Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy the journey as much as me! Stay tuned!
