On an excursion to San Lorenzo in Panama we reach the high mountain that holds ruins to an old fort. Walking through the entrance way & beyond, the first thing that you approach are loads of cannons. To the right of a cannon you can see, what once was, a watch tower. You can't help but wonder, who manned that tower & what was going through their minds as the days came to a close?

Location: San Lorenzo, Panama
