Street games in Casco Viejo

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

My belly was hurting from so much laughter! Outside my office I heard this really loud noise, children screaming laughing and things falling down, stumbling. I went out and the APROJUSAN kids where playing “congelada” (frozen) and it was to die for.  I really can´t remember the last time I played it, but I do remember having tons of fun with it.

Basically, someone is “it” and if he/she touches you, then you are frozen. You can be “defrosted” by a friend that runs and touches you, and there are “havens” (determined in advance) where “it” can´t reach you. The game allows for “chains” which are made by children holding hands, one touching the “haven” and the idea is to reach a “frozen” one to “defrost” him in a safe way. I loved it because it quickly makes kids run like crazy, work in a team, focus on a goal and make the best to “save” their friend.  What could be better!!! In the meantime, it is all chaos… fantastic. At the end, kids where exhausted, sweating, smiling, rushed with endorphins.  As healthy kids should be.
