Ooops – I forgot!
If instead of turning off toward Tocumen Airport, you’d just keep driving you would end up in Central Panama. The Pan American Highway gradually peters out into a gravel road pretty much in the middle of nowhere. When I was driving along this road, hours from Panama City, trying to see how far I could go since my daughter’s plane had been delayed by 12 hours, I passed this guy who was wearing a t-shirt and boots, and ONLY a t-shirt and boots, with his machete under his arm heading for work. Obviously he forgot his pants.
Seemed like an interesting shot and believe me, I do identify! It’s almost happened to me, not quite, but almost. When you’re “retired,” living the good life, sometimes you forget about little things … like pants.
