  1. Morning Barbara:

    As a matter of fact I did noticed your absence. I thought that probably you were on a trip to Puerto Rico, or somewhere in the Caribbean.

    I’m glad you are back and I can “talk” to you, at least to say a friendly “Hello“. We are fine, if you consider that I’m 69 and my wife is 71. 🙂

    As you can see, I continue to keep the ball rolling posting one blog post per day. I’ve been doing this for the last eight years, and God permitting, plan to keep it this way as long as I can physically do it.

    Reciprocally, I hope all is also well on your side. Thank you for that sweet and warm “Hello“.

    Bye, Bye,

    Omar.-

  2. The first photo is my favorite of the two. I very much like the vintage post-card feel of it. The empty space in the foreground has a plaza-like feel that’s very inviting. I’d like to be having a morning coffee there, myself!

    1. Morning Linda:

      By all means be my guest. Take the first plane down from Houston, Texas and be my guest for a nice Panamanian hot coffee. We have excellent coffee down here.

      As you probably noticed, I lowered the camera as much as I could to cover the street from the ground up. The first image is a result of a photo effect of an old photograph, thus the yellowish tint.

      Best Regards,

      Omar.-

  3. Hola Omar,
    Looks like Central Avenue, about where the old Taboga clothing store was? I remember it as a main street filled with traffic, bumper-to-bumper. We were walking thru there a few years ago showing my kid sister around Panama for her first time. She and her husband have since been back on their own trip.

    1. Hola Jim y Nena:

      Once it was called Avenida Central. Then Mayoress Mayín Correa decided to transform it into a pedestrian street where people could walk on the street and buy their stuff at the business bordering the street.

      In the sixties it was the busiest street in Panama City, noisy, vibrant and full of traffic and people frantic to buy their goodies. Over the years it has fallen into the back burner, if you know what I mean.

      I like to return every few months to refresh my memories. When I was in high school I lived in the vicinity—Plaza Herrera. It was here where I bought my uniforms to use at school.

      Yep, Almacén Taboga rings a bell to me.

      Regards,

      Omar.-
