        Nice place, Price may be negotiable. Good hot showers... can be noisy on the weekends - try to get a room off the street. Great pizza restaurant downstairs.

It was weird though, once we had stopped for just 4-5mins resting on the steps whilst Aaron got the money out of his shoe, we felt like we could have gone back and done way more. However Aaron had mentioned and reminded me that we can't over do it when we aren't properly altitude-trained. We quickly walk into the supermarket, grab our eggs and a bottle of water ...

        Paja Taquilla was another hat shop, just a few doors down from the bakery, so we stopped in to see more hats. This shop was actually more educational than the museum we visited earlier.

        Panama Hats actually originate from Ecuador and it's the only place where they are made by hand. All hats invariably have some mistakes/defects which determines the different degrees ...
