The Panama - Belize Connection
Thu, May 18, 2017
And if those debates on contested histories were a bit too heavy, scenic shots of Panama will certainly lighten the mood. 60 pictures from 24 members of the Photographic Club of Panama line the walls of the Museum in Belize City. The exhibit opened tonight at 6:00 and we stopped by earlier to find out more about the unique connection between Belize and Panama.

Francisco Frauca, President, Photographic Club of Panama
"The idea of this photographic exhibition is to bring a little piece of Panama to Belizeans so you can get to know a little bit more about Panama and find out that we have been together a long of our history and we are more than friends, we are brothers and that Panama has so many similarities to Belize and this is just a way to show a little bit of Panama and try to share with you."

Courtney Weatherburne, 7News
"What are some of those similarities?"

Francisco Frauca, President, Photographic Club of Panama
"Well actually we have some pictures that many of you that have just been peeking at the preview of the exhibition found out that some houses for example are very similar in some areas near here and we have for example the Toucan that is the National Bird of Belize and that among if you see the cultures there are some similarities on the dresses, maybe on the festivities when we go a little more deeper and it is quite interesting to find out that."

The exhibit closes on July 18th.
