I seem to be drawn to this topic. I've uploaded a recording from a visit to Panama while the canal was still being built.

Kind regards,
Chad
Chad, I'm going to mark this as needing a bit of editing and then a Spot PL, if you don't protest. I think the additional pronunciation of the place names, as indicated in the text (I'm aware) are unnecessary and a bit disorienting. (These occur around 3:50 and 5:50 if I got that right.)
Chad, just a polite reminder. We're almost done with this collection and your help will be most appreciated!

And thank you again for taking part.
E agora, José?

We've almost completed this collection. It can be moved to Reader's Found if you wish.

I still have to scurry around a bit to get complete author biographical information, however. I shouldn't be too long in that.
E agora, José?

Hi Kevin, I agree, I have now removed these additional pronunciations of place names.
Hope this recording is much better now: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/travelcollectionshortnonfiction_11_various_128kb.mp3 Time: 09:00
