a glimpse


glimpse: TALL TALES OF HAVANA | It's one of these tales that people tell in the streets of Havana: no building in the old town Habana Vieja must look down onto El Capitolio, the former seat of the government, and so it still stands out as the area's highest landmark. Funnily enough it resembles the Capitol in Washington, but trumps (no pun intended) the twin in height.

glimpse: CAPITAL CATAPULT | A trade hub thanks to the canal, a financial center sheltered by a tax haven, a duty free zone second only to Hong Kong, Panama City is a money machine, an economic engine, a wealth generator. For some. Looking at the ivory towers from across the bay you will find that the capital catapults only a few to skyline heights, while most are left behind.
