Casco Viejo is the second oldest part of the city that the Spanish built after Panama Viejo was taken over and burned by conquestors in the 1600s. It is now a mixture of ruins and modern buildings and everything in between.
the white part in the sidewalk are cow bones.... i was a bit grossed out by that thought but apparently they weren't when they built it.
a close up of the cow bones.
the old separates the new.
vultures were easily spotted no matter where we were in the city... it was kind of a creepy feeling to know they were always watching you.
