PANAMA CITY (AP) – Esther Marina Sanchez has watched her neighborhood – the heart of Panama City – transformed by its designation as a UNESCO world heritage site. Tourists and well-heeled Panamanians now stroll the paving-stone streets among gaudy hotels, fancy restaurants and trendy discos that have popped up in once-dilapidated colonial-era buildings.
