“In 1510, the Spanish colonists, in their hot, cruel pursuit of gold” This paragraph seems to me an unnecessarily aggressive comment with the ancestors of Panamanians who among other things are interviewed for the restoration of their cathedral. They would have sought gold, but they also did many more things, such as the works of art they are restoring.
