Jean Carlos Prado, a Panamanian and U of L alum and Study Abroad guide, takes time out from playing with some Embera children to pose for a photo. The study abroad program visits the Indigenous people's village (called Puru) as part of their investigation into Panamanian Culture. The Embera are very welcoming and prepare a fish and patacones lunch that is hard to beat -- and the pineapple is, well, beyond words. Just taste it and you'll understand.
