My stay in Panamá City is off to a great start.
I am in a beautiful hostel – Los Mostros Hostel. Good swimming pool, plenty of places to sit, no dog, fans and fresh air. It also has a great kitchen (2nd only to Cumbres del Volcan in San Salvador). I will get to go through the Panamá Canal. I have hope for sailing. I know good people.
I have a friend from San Salvador who lived there and now lives here so I came here knowing I will get to know the city with him.
My first morning I met a few people at synagogue that I am happy to know and a new friend to explore and enjoy the city with. And we both have Claro Panama phone numbers so we can actually be in touch! Boy, does that help! She and I talked last night and today and have plans for tonight.
I also now have my new friend Mike (via boats) and his wife Mara.
There is much to explore here and I am looking forward to it!
