We received Porta and his girlfriend Andrea at Tocumen airport. We helped them with their luggage and took them with our brand new Toyota Rush, loaned for the adventure by Ricardo Perez S.A, which would be their home for a few days: the American Trade Hotel in Casco Viejo. The trip gave us the opportunity to know more about our first adventurer at PanamaBestInfluencer VR360. We talk to him about the lock, the mosquitoes, the spiders, the scorpions, the manta rays and the sharks. We wanted to see how far he could go, but he was not afraid. When we leave the jokes aside, we really talk. Of his fans, who are wonderful, of their tours in Latin America, of the complicated beginning in Spain, of the new projects. When we arrived at the American Trade, none of the four of us wanted to leave the conversation. Even so we said goodbye, aware that we had ahead of a week of adventure together.
The next morning the whole crew of PanamaBestInfluencer VR360 went to American Trade to welcome Porta and Andrea. We were Ruth Falquina and Ángel Alonso, CEOs of the Estado Latente, Marc Simón, Content Creator, and Marc Barrio, Project Manager of PanamaBestInfluencer. Upon arriving at the hotel lobby, a huge space of delicious architecture, bathed in the light of some windows that decorated it with wonderful views of Casco Viejo, Porta and Andrea were waiting for us. What they did not expect was the gift we had prepared to welcome them to the adventure. Porta could not hide his smile as he tore the garments of the three packages and discovered: a Samsung Gear VR glasses, a Samsung Fit and a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Once Porta kept his gifts, the team led the first adventurers to meet their mentors in Panama. We left Casco Viejo and the bustle of the city, but we did not go very far. Through a winding road somewhere in the vicinity of the city, the trees open up to the sky and there are single-family houses that contemplate the city from the top of the hill. We take Porta and Andrea to one of these houses, the door opens before us and from the inside a warm welcome escapes.
The FranticBallerinas, Nony, Carmy and Winter, welcome us in their house, but they are not alone. They are accompanied by Monalisa, rhythm guitar, Johan, electric guitar, and Alfonso, bass.
It was an abundant breakfast in which there was no lack of fruit, pastries, mimosas, sweets and music conversations. We had just arrived, but from the first moment we felt at home. Having breakfast with the FranticBallerinas and their musicians was like meeting up with old friends. To say goodbye, the whole band gave us an acoustic of "Beautiful Thing", the soundtrack of PanamaBestInfluencer VR360.
With the echo of "Beautiful Thing" still ringing in our heads, we returned to Casco Viejo to teach Porta and Andrea one of the most historical architectural experiences. The Hotel Central, the first hotel to be built in Panama, a colonial construction that carries the history of the city, reformed to become one of the most elegant hotels, welcomes us with a tasting lunch. A menu created by an Argentine chef, but with Panamanian dishes. Ceviche, a great variety of salads, entrees of meat and vegetables and pastas. But the queens of lunch were bowels. Served by the expert waiters who slice it at the table while the diners wait with their mouth water to serve the delicacy.
After lunch, I continued to discover the historical corners of Panama. With Porta and Andrea we rode the Casco Viejo at sunset. From the cathedral to the Place de France. The cobbled streets centuries ago. The colonial houses that have endured the passage of the years. The squares with their churches. The statues commemorating the Panamanian heroes, the settlers, the founders of the country, the conquerors, the martyrs and the builders of the canal. With the lighting of the lights of the Cinta Costera, the first day of Porta in Panama ended.
