Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Colorful Panama City – 500 year old buildings still used.

with 2 comments

Very few people have a chance to visit Panama but if you do, check out the old city. This settlement was built in 1519(!)  just 27 years after Columbus “discovered” the Americas.  Some of theses buildings are still being occupied.  We are talking about buildings nearly 500 years old. Over the years the buildings have seen a lot of wear but recently renovation has begun.

In addition to their age, they are also very colorful.

  2. Will do Do Re Me. This area was very beautiful but there were other parts of Panama City that was very congested with cars and all the expectations of life in the 21st Century. The best parts of Panama are the old city, the Canal, the rain forest and the sea.
