Culecos in Panama During Carnival
After much controversy, the Administrator of the Tourism Authority of Panama, Solomon Shamah, announced today that the route in the capital Panama City for Carnival 2010 will be on Vía España. The group responsible for organizing the Carnival celebrations in Panama City said that if Vía España was selected they there would be no major changes and the celebrations would be held from Via Brazil to the Hotel El Panama. Organizers said government agencies such as the National Police, the National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc), the Ministry of Health and the Fire Department have all said this route is the safest. They also said the "Culecos" (spraying water from tanker trucks) will begin at 10:00 am, while evening activities will go on until midnight, as they had previously announced a few days ago. Via Justo Arosemena was considered as an alternate route but was dismissed for security reasons. For his part, Carlos Arias, one of the organizers of the festival, said he was satisfied with the decision, and that his is what they expected. Regarding the contracting of musicians, Shamah said that starting today they will begin to develop the list of artists who will be performing on stage. (Source: TVN Noticias)

Editor's Comment: Carnival in Panama is the greatest national party of the entire year. Have a fantastic time, but make sure to protect yourself from the things that can screw you up. If you're going to be out in the sun all day wear some kind of a hat and sunscreen on exposed skin. If you're going to participate in the "culecos" you're probably going to get soaked to the skin so you might want to leave your cell phone and important papers at home or in your hotel room. If you're a hot chick and you're going to participate in the "culecos" then you should know that wearing bras or bikini tops under your t-shirt is illegal in Panama during carnival, so just go with the flow and don't worry about the whole "wet t-shirt" thing.
