A Visit To A Barbershop


I have been cutting my hair with the same barber since I was working for Texaco many years ago—back in the seventies.  His name is Fidedigno López.  I wrote about our warm friendship several years ago.

I don’t have much hair, but the little there is, is trimmed by Mr. López almost every month.  He charges me a special rate—$5.00 per haircut.  He said that is what I will pay forever.  Isn’t he a great guy?  His partner is Donald who has become a good friend over the years.

Lately I’ve been taking my compact camera wherever I go, so I took several pictures of Fidedigno and Donald during my last visit to their barbershop.  Here we go.

Snapshot of a customer of the barbershop posing for the camera together with his small kid. Lovely dad and son’s picture, isn’t it? Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

And now you know where I cut the little shoots of hair I’ve still got blowing in the wind.  Good Day.

      Thank you for your kind comment. I wish you could travel to Panama. I’m sure you would enjoy your stay here immensely. I also liked the picture of the father and son.

      Enjoy the rest of the day. 🙂
