Casco Viejo

Posted by Susanna On December - 29 - 2010

My first day in Panama. I remembered a cartoon of my childhood with a little bear and a little tiger. They always used to say: “Oh how beautiful is Panama!” They were right – Panama is a wonderful place. The weather is perfectly warm. For me a perfect condition. I stayed in the old quarter, so called Casco Viejo. It is a photographers paradise since there all over hidden corner and beautiful restored colonial houses are close neighbors to old morbid ruins. The quarters special atmosphere makes the mixture of both. Panama City was founded on the 15th of August 1519 as a important connection for colonial Spain while conquering the Inca kingdom and transporting gold from the new world. The old quarter owns as well a few beautiful old churches. One of them is accommodates the famous golden altar. In 1671 famous pirate Henry Morgan, a welsh man, was in the process of robbing Panama City. He was looking for the golden altar and it is said that his raid on Panama was one of the last military campaigns in the wars of the reformation. However the monks had time enough to paint the altar black to hide it from the pirates and that is why we can still admire it today.
Other than that I tried to get my broken external hard disc fixed and I tried to buy a new hard disc. But both didn’t work out, unfortunately.

Breakfast with hummingbird

Posted by Susanna On December - 2 - 2010

Today started with a breakfast at the WunderBar. While eating my fruit salad I observed a hummingbird outside the windows. I did some photos what was kind of difficult since the bird is very fast. After that I decided to see the view archeological sites like the Ruinas de Todos Santos and the ruins of the Inca city called Tomebamba. The archeological park is wonderful. Not that much the ruins but the garden and the various Ecuadorian birds.

Ruins at Ingapirca

Posted by Susanna On November - 30 - 2010

The best and cheapest way to visit Ingapirca the best preserved Inca ruins of Ecuador from Cuenca is with the bus. You need to go to the main terminal and take a “Canar” bus. It cost me $5 there and back. But it took ages since the bus stops for everybody who waits for a bus at the streets. In total it took about 3h there then I only had 45min to visit the ruins and the museum and then the same exhausting trip for 3h back. Ingapirca cost $6 entry for foreigners. The ruins are nice but not to compare with Machu Pichu or the Mexican pyramids. Still it was worth seeing! If I would have done that trip with a tour it would have cost me about $40. So $11 is a great deal I think.
