Panamá is a strange city, somewhat a bit schizophrenic. Half of it is old, half of it is new. Anything in between is either demolished or in construction.
Casco Viejo, the infamous old district is almost safe now. It has some new upscale restaurants and cafés, but it is still heavily patrolled by the policia. On the other hand, Via España (the banking district) is nice, although chaotic and busy. There are a lot of travellers from Venezuela and Colombia but not many gringos… at least we haven’t seen any. We are still adjusting to the heat and to the culture, but my Spanish isn’t too bad.
I am doing my best with the pictures here, I know a couple look a bit distorted… but hey, when was the last time you worked with a Window 95 computer which looks like it is high on Valium?? Thank you so mucb for your comments and your wishes, I did read them all. I will reply and beg for your patience… I need time to master Spanish keyboards (love these ñ, dont you?) and to master anything in Central Anerica for that matters.
