Day three of our big-city trip to find passage finds us playing tourist, in the old town. Where the views are lovely, the architecture nostalgic and decrepit and the hand-stitched molas irresistible souvenirs. It is here we finally give in to the pace of Panama. We can become as jaded as the expats back at Santa Clara or go with the flow. We’ll just enjoy this crazy juxtaposition of modernity and mañana syndrome. Why make a decision affecting the rest of our journey today when we can put it off until tomorrow, when the deposits are due?
