A day at the mall, a night on the town

semi-overcast 29 °C

We beat the most recent soaking tropical depression by hitting up the famous Albrook mall yesterday. Our real reason: to see the latest Justin Timberlake sci-fi flick (I mean, is there anything this guy can't do, with or without a box?!).


The city's water supply was shut off all day and night so most of the city's half a million residents came to the mall to use the restroom I reckon.

Most of them rode this Franklin County school district bus with us.

After I grew tired of marveling at modern plumbing at the mall, Liz got some free hugs. Abrazos gratis!

Then last night, to celebrate the birth of my niece and our second month abroad, we took a trip down to the happening Calle Uruguay to the Hotel Manrey, where we promptly partied like manroyalty


with the freakin' Gipsy Kings!

I killed the batteries on my camera taking movie after movie of the concert, the best of which is probably this section of Bamboleo.

We didn't leave till the last string broke.
