On Friday there was an opening of the new Mireya Moscoso museum. Mireya Moscoso was the first woman president of the Republic of Panama and she is from the Pedasi district. In fact, probably every second person you pass on the street is her relative in some shape or form. One of the Moscoso family houses that faces Parque Central has recently undergone a beautiful renovation and now stores memorabilia and pictures from Señora Moscoso’s early life and on.
SU and I popped in briefly on our way to the coronation on Friday night. Despite SU’s insistence that he wasn’t dressed appropriately the photographer was determined to take our picture after we chatted with the President about the Canadian memorabilia.
Afterwards, the photographer told me to take a picture of the picture on his camera. The resulting photo was pretty good…in the campo.
