  1. That pink building is lovely, and I love the laundry on the line. Was the pink building “something” at one time, like a government building? Or is it just residential?

  2. Hi Linda:

    The pink building is a residential apartment building restored by the Martin Torrijos administration. When I was there to take the shot, it looked like a brand new building totally built with wood. The architectural style was untouched.

    This colonial section of Panama City is known as Casco Viejo or Old Shell. It’s one of the most heavily photographed areas of the whole country, including the ruins of Panama Viejo and the Panama Canal.
