Because why not? Photo posts are way easier, and if I’m going to do the serious historical stuff, I might as well do it for real and write a book. Which isn’t to say that no more of that will show up here, but if you want consistent content, you’ll have to live with my photography. Suck it up.
Casco Viejo is Panama’s second-oldest old town. (The oldest, Panama Viejo, was burned down by Henry Morgan, the Captain Morgan of rum fame.) Starting in the early 17th century, this became the center of Panama City, although it’s more the tourist center these days with stunning modern skyscrapers popping up everywhere else nearby.
