I spent a good part of the morning just walking around the old part of Panama City snapping some pictures. This place is very colorful in both its people and place. Once I got tired of that I jumped on one of the double Decker tourist buses to a tool around environs further flung. It was a total rip off, but I’m still glad I did it.
One of the highlights was going to the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal. Many years ago Ray and I took a cruise from Acapulco, MX to San Juan, PR and we traversed the Canal. It was fun watching it from the other angle this time. I even got a reasonably good selfie there.
I’m headed back to LA tomorrow morning. The main purpose of my trip was to get a sense of what this city/country was like, thinking perhaps I may want to spend a winter here sometime. But, I’ve probably ruled that out since it just didn’t click for me. I think I like Puerto Vallarta better.
