We’re Not in the Campo Anymore Toto!

And so we’re on the last leg of the “Tour de Sobrina Chiquita 2015” and we’ve left the campo to travel to the Big City.  Yep, the Big Sweatbox, Big Traffic Jams, and big everything else to our little campesino eyes.

We arrived at casa de mi amiga late yesterday afternoon after successfully obtaining a Panapass.  This allows us to travel on the corredors (freeways) that are paid as you go.  We’ve never needed one before because they have only been mandatory for less than a year, replacing the swipe cards that were used for Corredor Norte and Corredor Sur.  (Dusty, you can let El Gordo know that keeping his card was a waste of time.)  We haven’t brought the vehicle into PTY since the stickers came into being and this is the first time in a year that SU has traveled to the city.

Last night we decided to go see  Los juegos del hambre: Sinsajo. P 2 (that would be The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2).  Feeling adventurous we decided we would try a VIP theater it’s a little pricier but you can see by the photos that you have to try it at least once.  After spending three hours in luxury being waited on and eating my weight in caramel popcorn, a normal theater experience would be a major let down.  But what am I saying, the closet movie theater to la casa is an hour away and any movie is  an adventure…in the campo.

  1. Wow, that is quite the theater!

  2. Did you roll out! 😎

  3. For the first time in years I’m staying in Panama City for three days before heading out to the beach. Let me know what’s fun in addition to the swanky movie theater!

      We did the movie last night, I believe there are a few of the VIP Theatres in the city. Today we got a later start because I had a commitment this morning but we did manage to squeeze in the Fish Market for a tour (but better to go earlier than we went) and a lovely outdoor meal, Casco Viejo and then Amador for gelato. 🙂 Pictures to follow.

    The contrast between the city and country is astonishing, isn’t it?

  5. Sounds great…. where exactly is this?

      This is one of the Cinépolis VIP Theatres in the city. The one we went to is at the new Soho Mall, which is quite swishy and high end. There is another at Multiplaza.

I'd love to hear from you!
