More Panama Hats

We stumbled upon another Panama Hat place on one of our walks...

There are several places that sell P. Hats, and this one is in the El Barranco area near the river.

A small museum is also onsite, but it was closed when we were there.

A student, practicing his English, showed us around the shop (which is huge) and the machinery (he 'works' for tips).

There is a stairway in the back that leads up to a view of the City. There is also a cafe up there and a photography area where it looked like folks could dress up in 'authentic' clothes and 'pose' making hats (??). We didn't watch that long enough to figure it out, but it looked like some kind of tourist-y thing...

(We tried on several, but no purchases... we already have hats!)
