Panama City has a pretty good reputation for being a welcoming touristy town.
As such, and unlike other metropolitan areas, graffiti on public places is actually a challenge to find. That is, unless you happen to travel by the train tracks adjacent to the Panama City Mall.
The trains typically bring supplies mostly for the paper mill and can often be seen loaded with wood chips.
As the multitudes of rail cars are not the property of the city they can be in various states of appearance. I grew up in the D.C. area so it’s a very heartwarming feeling I get to see some of this “urban art” make its way into our area.
The recently completed water tower in the background provides a nice contrast between a commissioned mural and a “guerrilla” art form.
