From Dawn till Dusk in Panama City


Sunrise in Panama City. The east side.

(This unpublished post has been lingering around for two years. Better late than never) 



The best thing about this high rise condo was the view!

Sunrise in a major city was a complete 180 over our usual travel vantage point. We're usually isolated on a hillside or nestled on a beach. Even so, the lofty perspective was pretty darn cool. 


I zoomed in on this photo from our condo on high. They were shooting a commercial. Or just having a killer photo party. The ladies were in complete feathery regalia. I always regretted not going down to see the scene in person. 



This was the view that was sandwiched between the city. And all those high rise buildings. 



Boats were always cruising by, heading for the Panama Canal. 


I turned around!



The west side.



Sunset was spent looking out and about over another vantage point. It was really the only time of day that we could enjoy our tiny balcony, without cooking the books. Among other things...



I hope the graphic designer of these labels was paid well. The graphics are awesome! It's fun to try craft beer in different parts of the world. 





Here, the city was just turning on the lights for the night. Headlights and tail lights were a constant blur of light. To see the city at its most vibrant, revisit this Panama post. Neon City  



The Moon over Panama. I've seen many a moon over Central America. And counting...

I like the giant beers. They're bigger than the sky scrapers!

In the Neon City post you've got glasses of wine; in this post - bottles of beer.
It seems a drink can help "digesting" the beauty of a place like Panama city.

Wow!!! Amazing views, amazing all those high rises together. And yep, I enjoy sampling craft beers from all over. My wife will ask me, how do you know it is any good? The answer is I don't but I love finding out.

I have tried craft beers from different parts of the world. Now it seems there are as many in my grocery store as ever, and I still will try one that catches my eye with an interesting label. Love your pictures, Sharon. Glad this post finally saw the light of day. :-)

What an incredible view! My husband would be all over those craft beers, he's always hunting down local beers everywhere we travel. :)

I haven't been to Panama in a long time but I would like to go back. I bet it has changed a lot. I enjoyed the food in the city. I think that is one of the main reasons I want to go back.

Those are indeed a great collection of souvenir pics from another place. Everything is spectacular, but i smiled at the moon at the end, the only picture that is the same anywhere in the world, even here with us!

Great photos, Sharon! You captured the moon in perfect focus. And I really like the shot of the city just lighting up for the night. Those local craft beers look like fun, too!

Thanks for a day in the life of Panama City. Looks like a buzzing place. Love the sunrise shot and the cars with lights.

Well that was a full day of photos! From sunrise to sunset. Beautiful photos Sharon. That's twice I've seen sunrise photos today, heck I might even try it myself someday.
