Terraces on the Banks of the Panama Canal
Terraces on the excavated wall of the Panama Canal, with the terraces designed to prevent landslides, a recurring problem on the Canal. Opened in 1914, the Panama Canal is a crucial shipping lane between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans that mean that ships don't have to go around the bottom of South America or over the top of Canada. The Canal was originally built and owned by the United States but was handed back to Panama in 1999.
