Day 107 - Panama City

PANAMA | Monday, 22 September 2014 | Views [215]

Started the day with a pathetic attempt at a run around Santa Catalina. At least it was something eh?

We met Tony to drive to Panama City at 7.30 & stopped at the local bakery for breakfast on the way. After a tasty omlette & excellent coffee (or two) we set off for the 5-7 hour journey.

As we were leaving Santa Catalina we encountered some Panamanian cowboys whipping a poor bull up & down the road as he tried to escape the slaughter. It wasn't pleasant to watch the ordeal that went on for a good 10 minutes.

We dropped Zoe off in Santiago and continued on to Panama City. With a quick lunch at a truck stop about 100kms out of town we had made good time & arrived around 3.30pm. A wrong turn actually landed us in casco viejo right near our hostel & at that exact moment we also found or friend Becky.

After checking in at Luna's Castle we wandered around the waterfront & checked out casco viejo. Found a supermarket, cooked up a good dinner & then decided to venture out for a cocktail. We managed to get in for free to a swanky rooftop place despite being in thongs & awkwardly drank our piña coladas before deciding we could no longer afford to be there.

We went back to the hostel, played some table tennis with some Aussie guys we met & then headed to a cool little local bar. Chicks got free sangria so we made the most if that before drinking several more jugs. We stayed there until it pretty much closed, found a small crew to kick on with & ended up at two more clubs. It was pouring with rain and about 7.30am by the time we got to bed!
