This bar is on the Pan-American highway, not far from the Via Boquete overpass. It’s my favorite place to cross the highway on my bike, so I pass it often. Sometimes on Sunday mornings it’s a rockin place with music blaring and people having fun. Today, it was quieter with only a few guys enjoying their beer. But, it’s unusual to see a horse parked outside.
I usually feel a bit uncomfortable pointing a camera at someone, but often the Panamanians are delighted that you want a photo of them and they are happy to pose. This guy stood proudly by his horse with his most dignified expression on his face.
The owner of the horse had been talking to a couple guys seated at a table inside. They each had a number of beer bottles in from of them, and they assured me that the horse also was getting his share.
It’s fun living here. You never know what you will see or who you will end up talking to.
