A bribe of almonds and a $20 bill saved me from the Panamanians. Without the bribe, this experience with the Panamanian police could have ended much differently.
Happy Panamanian Independence Day!
November 3rd is celebrated as independence day in Panama. One of two Independence days for Panama. Since Panamanians get both days off of work, many people take the 4th off as well and make it a long week vacation.
