Being a tourist

Sunday was a glorious day to be
a tourist in sunny Panama where I visited the old city....
Striped dress (no brand) - Exclusive! jean flats - Neiman Marcus fuchsia tote - Panama hat

This colonial area is actually called San Felipe in the city of Panama.


San Felipe has a couple of plazas that bring to life this colonial place.


This magic place sits in front of the Pacific Ocean and has the most
magnificent buildings....


Old buildings I love.



 Big windows, well kept balconies where bouganvillas and ferns hang.




Many of them have been restored to their original beauty.


Others are still waiting to be intervened and in the meantime provide
an interesting contrast....


Walking the old brick streets gives you an idea of what live could have been like.


This place has personality, many interesting paintings and graffitis can be seen
as you walk down the sidewalk.


Here you can find the Presidential palace, shops, museums, exhibitions, churches, bars and coffee shops to make a stop and 
add more flavor and color to your day before going back to reality !



I must admit this has got to be one of my most colorful posts... ever.
The pictures have only been cropped - colors are just like they were :)

It looks so beautiful. I love the contrast of the new(er) and the old. The graffiti with the striped legs is awesome - you match it in your striped dress!

I LOVE when you take us sight-seeing on your trips; that is a part of the world I will likely never see, so thank you for sharing your view of it!!
