Sunday in Casco Viejo

Iglesia de la Merced
After church at Iglesia de la Merced we walked around the corner and past the Presidential Palace. The guards allowed us to walk right past the front door - didn’t see the boss.

Presidential Palace Flag in front of Palacio de las Garzas

Flea Market
Then over to Plaza de la Independencia for the monthly Casco Viejo flea market.

Kuna women and their crafts.
Molas and other crafts on display.

The bright cloth panals you see are Molas which are hand made using a reverse appliqué technique by the women of the Kuna Yala tribe. The Mola forms part of their traditional costume, two Mola panels being incorporated as front and back panels in a blouse.

Had some street food for lunch and bought some baked goods. Then back to the apartment for a lazy Sunday.

Take care.
