Panama greeted us with warm smiles and breezes, while our jetlagged bodies make there way through customs and headed to our hotel. We sped down the streets of Panama going many Kilometers an hour - yes, Kilometers, we’re not in the USA anymore. We make it, our hotel, we get our room keys and crawl our way into bed attempting to squeeze as much sleep into the next 5 hours as possible. Our alarm goes off much too soon and its time to go.
Still dragging from the previous day as we went to breakfast. For our first meal we enjoyed local cuisine, some of us being more adventurous than others. Almost an hour and a half went by as we ate, talked, and enjoyed our surroundings.
With a new found pep we headed to Panama City. We visited the heart of the town. We roamed from chapels to churches and bustling stores to street vendors. Haggling for the first time, we stocked up on goodies, including free hater stones (amethyst).
Our final stop was El Dorado Rotary. As soon as we walked through the door we were welcomed like old friends. We met with community leaders and they told us all about their many current projects.
So far, Panama has overwhelmed me with beautiful architecture, people, and memories.
Be a Gift to the World,
