Just off Avenida Central is a host of casinos, cantinas and social clubs. The daylight was pouring into this pool hall. For $3 bucks and hour the table is yours. These guys were playing some kind of variation of 9 ball. The games were quick. The money was flying back and forth. Just a buck or two per game. Inside the pool hall was a neon painting of a topless woman and the mural you see of The Bridge of the Americas. The bridge is at the Pacific entrance of The Panama Canal. The neighborhood is a hotbed of activity. One moment a guy is dropping quaters in the juke box. You can hear the music blaring out of most establishments. Day or night there is always action.
