Panama city, is like something you would expect to see in the USA, all sky rised building blocks, shiney in the sun.  Lots and lots of twisting roads, all with shiney new cars on them.  Its weird but every car i have seen today, has been brand new.  There is plenty of American influence in this city, Mcdonalds, Dennys (whatever that is?) Pizza hut, KFC, Subway, ok so Costa rica has all this, but not on every single corner, thats new.  The weather is about the same as Costa rica, maybe i expected something more hotter? The hotel is hmmmmm, well i am not too sure on the hotel yet, it screams "unsafe" but the guide books quoted it as being ideal for backpackers and safe, clean and has a tv.  Plus it worked out cheaper than staying in a dorm, which was more money?? Internet is cheap in panama city, 50cent which 25p ha ha the cheapest i have ever paid in my life, god knows how much a dinner is gonna cost us, there is a place next door that does food, and also there is one across the street, we shall investigate. 

I was sad to leave costa rica, 3months is a long time in one place, but i liked it there, i am not sure on Panama yet, the guy at immigration was a pig!! so bloody rude, and thinking just because he controls the ins and outs on the boarder, that makes him god or something... one thing i cant stand is arsey bloody ppl who think just because they got a tiny bit of power, they are aloud to be rude.  Well we are off to find some food, and then sleep til morning, 18hours is a hell of a journey.
