Panama’s Border

Welcome to Panama!

Yesterday’s bordercrossing picture from Costa Rica to Panama, hitching into David around sundown with yet another good Samaritan from Honduras. It was a tight call whether I could cross, but I made it! The Panamese immigration officer asked me for my (fake) flight ticket to Madrid and it worked, then he asked me for proof of sufficient funds (US$ 500) and I showed him my credit card. That wasn’t enough so I showed him my other cards and told him just to trust me. He said “for next time in Panama, you’ll have to bring a bank statement”. Dingdingdingdingding I made it to my final destination!
