Photographer's Note

This was taken in the backyard of a hostel in the district of Casco Viejo in Panama City. It is probably not the best place to stay in as there are parts of the area which are considered 'red zones', places where the local would warn you about. But i love the charm of it being 'real', even though it can be depressing to see sometimes.
Casco Viejo is where the ruins from the attack of the Welsh pirate and his band of 1400 menin 1671 moved from Panama City.

I think if you have been to Panama City but not this part of town, you would have the impression that it's a prosperous city and in many ways very Americanized. But if you want to become closer to reality, this is a place where you can people watch and have a glimpse of their lives.
