Panama Day 5-Cerro Ancon

                          

Our last day was really busy. We reverted back to our trip standard of seeing thee things a day and blew right past it to finish off our visit! Next stop was Ancon Hill or Cerro Ancon. You take a narrow, windy road up 654 feet to the top of the hill and are rewarded with sweeping 360 degree views of the city. And believe me, mom needed a reward after that little car ride. I asked her if she was having flashbacks of the trip home from Panama where we drove through Central America and all I heard was a weak little grunt in response. Mama does not like windy, little mountain roads. But wow it was 
beautiful.

Me, doing what I do!

A lot of the residences are being bought up and restored but of course the one I wanted to stop and shoot was the crumbling one. While the new homes are beautiful and it's great to see them keep the bones of the older structures, I have always been a sucker for peeling paint and old world charm. 


Look! I really was there! Thanks for taking my pic, Mama!
