Shopping, Pool time and Las Tinajas
Not Just a Canal

The guys really like this hotel - its hard to drag them out to see more of the city but we do venture out to local shopping areas for lunch and a little sight-seeing. A wonderful little man stops us and directs us to the open-air market where people sell crafts and everything else imaginable. The gentleman is a local tourist ambassador and is charming.

Back to the hotel for some pool time. We've made reservations for Las Tinajas for dinner which is a restaurant that specializes in Panamanian dishes and has a Panamanian Folkloric dance show several nights a week. This turns out to be a very festive evening and we enjoy both the meal and the dancing immensely. One of Las Senoritas pulls Jake out onto the stage to dance... where's the camera when you need it? For anyone considering going to this terrific show, heed the travel guides warnings and book the show ahead of time. Dinner reservations DO NOT guarantee a seat for the show! We were very lucky that they had a cancellation.
