That’s how they roll!

Sundays are definitely a wonderful day to take a leisure ride! But instead of hopping in the car and burning your gas, take a nice bike ride to Casco!  By chance, this Sunday I ran into some friends whose hobby is bicycle riding. So they routinely ride their bikes with their whole family from Paitilla to Casco on Sundays. They told me that a lot of people like doing that because they can park their bikes at Unido where there’s a trusty bike rack (see picture), and then have a coffee inside. Afterwards they spend their Sunday walking around Casco. … Continue reading

A True Christmas Gift at Casco Viejo

Panama Casco Viejo Yesterday was Idalibeth and Doña Mary`s Christmas Party.  Every year, they host a party for the neighborhood kids, an event that has grown from being in someone`s borrowed patio to the big Plaza Centenario. At least a hundred kids attend, from all ages: they know each other from school, from their street, from the afterschool programs they attend (like Enlaces or Aprojusan).  Three things are common denominators in all of them: they are from the neighborhood, they are kids, and their parents belong or live nearby a gang (or former gang).
