Where is Panama???

Researching my upcoming trip to Central Ameria I was surpised to discover that Eastern Panama (easternmost point at 78-degrees longitude) is farther East than Florida (easternmost point 80-degrees). Panama even reaches farther east than the Bahamas! Who knew?????

Maybe this is common knowledge, but I had no idea and somehow, I kind of feel like I was lied to all of these years.

I'll spend the next few weeks trying to re-organize the Americas in my head.

You're right. What in the hell are those cartographers up to?!
