The New Coastal Strip of Panama,The Subway, and Raspao

Yesterday, Holy Saturday, Mary and I Mary looking through telescope at Coastal Strip in Panama at night – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Livingwent to the church to ask God for the peace of the world and ask for our union.  It was a very beautiful and emotional Mass of 3 hours with songs and candles.
 
Then, after Mass, we went to see the new coastal belt.  We have no words to describe our excitement at seeing Panama growing this most beautiful day.  The belt goes from the Old Town (Casco Viejo) to the Bridge of the Americas.  It has playgrounds, skating parks, and stunning views.
 
After all the walking we decided to eat a raspao, which is a Panamanian crazy ice.  If you come to Panama you have to ask for a raspao; you cannot leave without trying it.
