100 years

 This August 14th, The Panama Canal is celebrating 100 years   of serving the world overseas.,  Since  1914  the Panama canal had serviced all over the world in the maritime services.
For centuries, it was a pipe dream: the idea of a canal linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans via Panama. As early as 1534, people had tried – in various ways – to improve trade without the need for lengthy and dangerous sailings around the horn of South America. But sufficient technology did not yet exist to allow the creation of a canal, and those who attempted the journey overland were beaten down by the inhospitable conditions in the dense jungle.
