Upon checking into our hotel in David, Chiriquí, Panama, we heard a loud noise coming down the street. I thought it was likely a political hoopla, national elections are quickly approaching. There didn’t appear to be a slogan or anything pointing to a candidate, just a truck flying a flag of the province of Chiriquí with a brass bad in the bed of the truck blaring as loud as can be. And more horses than I have ever seen. The parade was six horses wide on the street and parade went on for a good 10 minutes.
Oh, and beer, many of the riders were carrying plastic cups of beer.
