From February 14 to 25, a group of adventurers made the Darién jungle their home while embarking on the expedition "Between Two Seas", and their chronicles will be compiled by the "Balboa's Route" project being executed by the Aprendo educational program of the Corporación La Prensa, with the support of the Panama Canal Authority.
The team, comprised of Rick Morales, Beatriz Schmitt, Líder Sucre, Enrique Arias, Candy Valle and Sugasti Segundo, was accompanied by the journalist, photographer and designer Alexander Arosemena, who chronicled their experiences on the route.
As the crew followed "Balboa's Route", the journey led them to gain insight on such details as the relationship the provincial community has with nature and how heavy logging has deformed the original landscape.
Wendy Tribaldos, manager of the learning program Aprendo, indicated that the project's aim is “for our readers to feel like they are a part of the journey made on the expedition.” The Aprendo program is always looking for projects that promote the country, stimulate reflection and contribute to its cultural heritage, comments Tribaldos. “When we found out about this expedition, its objectives and the level of human and professional standards of the people who would be participating, we did not hesitate to support it.”
