The paper studies intrinsic geometry in the tropical plane. Tropical structure in the real affine $n$-space is determined by the integer tangent vectors. Tropical isomorphisms are affine transformations preserving the integer lattice of the tangent space, they may be identified with the group $\operatorname{GL_n}(\mathbb{Z})$ extended by arbitrary real translations. This geometric structure allows one to define wave front propagation for boundaries of convex domains. Interestingly enough, an arbitrary convex domain in the tropical plane evolves to a polygonal domain in an arbitrarily small time. The caustic of a wave front evolution is a tropical analytic curve.
