This morning, we sadly said goodbye to Chitre, and embarked on the four-hour journey back to Panama City. After dropping off our luggage, we were greeted with a delicious lunch.
Afterwards, we rode to a street called Las Bovedas, which is located in Casco Viejo. Though we previously had visited this area, we asked to return so we could buy more beautiful, hand-made Panamanian art pieces and trinkets.
Upon returning to the hotel, we walked down the street to La Plaza, which was similar to an outdoor food court. It also had little shops where coffee, books, and art could be purchased.
At seven o’clock in the evening, we went to the restaurant La Taberna, which is located next to the hotel, to eat dinner as a family. There were many laughs and stories shared as we tried not to think about how this was one of our last nights here in Panama. We are excited to be able to experience the Embera Village tomorrow as our final adventure.
