|We left our wonderful beach resor this morning and returned to Panama City via the Bridge of the Americas. We had nice views from Amador Causeway of the canal and city sky line.
Our first stop was at a Guna tribal market. There were about 40 stalls in the building. They all had similar souvenirs. One of the handcrafts they made were Mola’s. These are a hand sewed panel with bright colors, depicting animals or nature. They were beautiful and very well done. They had beaded items and clothing of the area.
We arrived at our hotel for tonight. Intercontinental Miramar. It is the center of Panama Bay with views of the bay and Casio Viejo. We put our luggage off the bus, had a nice lunch and ready for the afternoon adventure.
We visited the Museum of Biodiversity. It is a strange structure designed by architect Frank Gerry. It has many bright colors on the outside. It can be seen from a good distance. It contained history of Panama dating way back.
We arrived back at the hotel and had a couple of hours before dinner. We had a dance show depicting Panamanian culture, the dress of the county. It was very interesting. The dresses are all sewed by hand.
We then had a tastey dinner of all kinds of seafood. We all said our goodbyes.
Raquel was a great tour guide. This was such a nice trip. We just sat back and enjoyed.
