Panama customs and traditions« Previous Entries
I had the greatest (and craziest) weekend getaway, when I decided to go to Panama. My ex, Steve, had been itching to go to this tropical paradise years ago, and after some love nest wrangling and two crash dates, I finally set foot on this country – alone.
While visiting the Iglesia de San Jose in Casco Viejo in Panama City, three big men approached me and told me they wanted to steal the famous Golden Altar. This ancient treasure was originally housed in a church in Old Panama that was built in 1519.
