Panama City Skyline available to license from Alamy Stock Photos

Afternoon over the harbor. The new skyline is impressive from a distance. However, the modern area isn't particularly exciting for a pedestrian. The tall buildings are situated away from the street and the sidewalk is discontinuous from building to building and often very narrow. I didn't notice enough plazas or parks. In three words, suburban skyscraper village. 

The view is from Casco Viejo, an old district of the city. I stayed in Hotel Colon, reputed to be the same one William Burroughs was at on his route south, described in "Queer", to find the drug "Yage".
