Day 9 Back to Panama City

We can’t believe our visit to El Valle is over today! In our few days here we’ve made lots of new friends and it feels as if we’ve been here for months.

We had planned to return to Panama City on Monday but decided it would be best to allow a full day to collect our passports from Immigration, have a final meeting with our Attorney and get our boarding passes from Copa. So, after bidding our hosts a fond farewell and promises to keep in touch via email, we set off for the Panama City domestic Airport.

An uneventful drive brought us to the Airport, only to find that Thrifty is not open at the airport on Sunday! We can return the car to a downtown location tomorrow so, with the help of our Garmin, we set off! Driving in Panama City is not something Priscilla was looking forward to but Bill, on the other hand, thought it would be a great adventure! Fortunately, since it was early on Sunday, traffic was minimal and apart from one missed turn-off we arrived close to the condo in a very short space of time. There is no way we could have made it without the Garmin! We decided to stop at Rey’s Supermarket a couple of blocks from the condo and buy something for dinner so that we could eat in, catch up on the blog and relax!

Rey’s Supermarkets carry everything that you could want! The one on Via Espana is huge, has an excellent meat counter and a very good choice of pre-packaged salads, cerviche, cooked chicken, wraps, etc.
