Casco Life

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

Coming back to Panama from a recent trip, we stopped at Albuquerque and hit some antique stores. You won´t believe my surprise when I found in a pile of old National Geographic magazines, an article about Panama. The year was 1941. I simply loved it. Since today we are celebrating the foundation of “Panama La Vieja”, I thought it would be a good moment to put these out there!
