For the 5th day of my Panama Challenge, I thought it would be a good idea to talk a little bit about Panama's yummy food! I really had a hard time trying to figure out how to dress like Panamanian food. So what I did is that I wore a yellow dress symbolizing the fact that many Panamanian foods are yellow. And I added the brown belt to symbolize Panama's excellent coffee.. jajaj its a vague inspiration, I know. But at least I tried!

Panama is really good at making certain food products. For example, Panama is well known for making really good coffee. In fact, Panama broke a record for brewing the largest cup of coffee in 2007. It had 2,840 liters of coffee!
Panama is also well know for having good sea food (since we have coasts on both oceans) and for having good beer. To be honest with you, I don't particularly like either of these two things, but I do know Panama is really good at both of them.
Panama also offers a delicious Chicken soup that we call "Sancocho". Panama actually got a Guinness Record for making the largest bowl of chicken soup in 2003. I know chicken soup sounds plain, but if you taste Panama's chicken soup, you would be amazed!
So that is today's interesting fact about Panama. The challenge is almost finished, I hope you have all enjoyed it so far!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn these patterned shoes:

  1. OK, but which foods are yellow? He he. I'm also trying to figure out how chicken soup could be particularly awesome, and I'm leaning towards possibly it is spicy. Some jalapenos might be a nice addition.

  3. you made a wonderful selection in that outfit -- the yellow to match arroz con pollo, talames, paella, and ripe mangos, along with the green to match the tamale leaf wrappings, mango leaves, etc. Your shoes really add to the tropical outfit. Yes the Panamanian chicken soup is a world apart from Campbell chicken soup. jgm
