Panama City Buses

Panama City Buses

One of the most colorful elements of Panama City are the buses which fly down the streets. These are no ordinary city buses, as they are painted from stem to stern with beautiful scenes of women, battles, movies, and loved ones. It is my impression that the drivers are permitted to customize their buses how they want to: so there are buses with shark fins on top, with paintings of beautiful women, and portraits all over them. These painted buses are awesome.

One of the most colorful aspects of Panama City are the public buses. You can sit for hours just watching them pass, and talking about them. These buses really are a moving art gallery
