What a Panama Tour Can Really Teach You
As we walked along the ruins, you couldn't help but think what times must have been like back in the days of the pirates. Looking out over the clear water, you could see for miles. Definitely something that would benefit you if you were worried about your safety. People are there touring from all over the world. Yet for many people, that is their home. As you enter or leave the different areas, you'll always come across children sent out to make a little extra for the family. They may try and sell you a bracelet or necklace. They may bargain with you. Whatever they do, you can't help but pay attention. Slowly they pull you back to the cart where their mothers and fathers have set up shop for the day. Selling a few trinkets here and there, just trying to get by. Of course we bought. Of course we tipped. And we have the photographs to always remember just how lucky we are to do what we do.
