Arches

Here is the view down one of the aisles of Panama’s cathedral with some beautiful chandeliers. A Panamanian local took a photo of us all together on the steps outside – well worth a balboa! The local currency here is called the ‘balboa’ which is directly equivalent to one dollar and, in fact, dollars are the ‘unofficial’ currency of the country. I think the paper balboa only exists in theory – at least, I have never seen one in the flesh!

There was a similar sight in an arcade just opposite the cathedral. Very pleasingly symmetrical.
