Survived the 15 hour bus ride from San Jose to Panama City. It was pouring when we arrived and we hadn´t booked a room so we had to limp through the streets like two drowned rats until we found somewhere. By this time, Julien´s ankle was twice its normal size. Today was a new day though. My Spanish was tested at the pharmacy, but I managed to get what he needed and he´s feeling much better. Luckily the taxis here are cheap! He wasn´t going to miss seeing the Plaza de Francia and it´s monument to the French who died whilst building the Panama Canal. The old colonial part of the city has beautiful architecture and is really charming. Many buildings have yet to be restored and are in a really bad state of repair, but those that have been renovated are a reminder of Panama City in its heyday.
