Panama City...old and new...

With 200 new buildings under construction, a subway underway, upgraded sewage treatment plant to safeguard the shoreline in Panama City, this is a world class city...There is an elegance about it...there is charm..there is history and most importantly, there are the people...In the month we have spent here and travelled much of the country, the most outstanding thing that I am going to take home with me is how warm and friendly the people are...This is just a few of the photos I wanted to share with you today.


The old and the new residing together...we took the bus into town..1 hr 15 mins... $2.50 each. We met up with our wonderful guide Miguel..we had met him on the Panama Canal tour and he was so knowledgeable....what a joy it was to have him drive us around as well explain the history of this vibrant city.



The amazing skyline.......


The Trump Tower...


The churches...the wonderful restored facades!


The colors are still pretty spectacular....


Last but not least, the balconies..wrought iron, flowers and as always....colors
