Panama City, día una, parte dos.
After my tour of the Panama Canal, I hopped back on the tour bus (it was one of those "hop-on hop-off" tours), and headed to Old Panama, or Casco Viejo (orrr Casco Antiguo). I had made friends with a couple of Americans at the canal--one guy was even from SoCal(!)--and we decided to team up for the rest of the day. I was the only one who spoke even a little Spanish, so I felt kind of cool when I ordered lunch for the group--after inquiring about the best food on the menu, in Espanol, of course (#humblebrag).
The vibrant colors here reminded me a of Portugal.
A perk of meeting people: getting to be in a photo!
Note: portraits can be tricky. I always ask prior to taking someone's photo, and I'll be sure to tip any musician.
(In this case, I asked if I could take a portrait and bought a couple pieces of his jewelry.)
