Panama City Panama - Buildings

What is left of Noriega's presidential palace after the Americans got done bombing it.

Panama City sits on the Pacific side of the country, which had us totally turned around for quite a while. For some reason, our interior compass was off by 180 degrees until we were assured several times that it was the Pacific we were looking at.

There are a variety of buildings in the city, from the new museum that is under construction, to historic churches filled with gold plated scenes, to the old buildings that are in ruins, to the new skyscrapers that fill the skyline, to the utilitarian buildings that house shops like "COSTCO" in China town.
