Though beyond my usual price range, El Oasis was well worth it. All staff members were very attentive and kind, The owner was the most helpful, definitely wanting to be sure my stay here was excellent. Benefits to staying here comfortable and clean rooms, wifi, access to laundry facilities (50 cents to wash or dry), and breakfast is included. Breakfast was very nice. You are given a menu with several meal choices including omelette, scrambled eggs, and french toast. Juice, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, and a fresh fruit plate come with every meal, eaten in a very nice garden patio. Computers and phones (with phone card) available for use. Great place!

Still unsure of what direction to walk, I followed my instincts to the immigration checkpoint. Immigration and customs were a breeze. I met up with Julio (program ...
... lot)! I ended up staying longer than I'd planned after a couple of Dutch girls I knew also breezed into town. I spent two days with them cycling around jungles and beaches, visiting wildlife sanctuaries, and seeing fireshows. Eventually we moved on to Panama, crossing the border and heading to Bocas del Toro for more cycling, beaches, jungles, parties, diving, and more parties! So, that's pretty much it! Where am I now? Well, I've just spent three days in a jungle lodge, called ...
... to have replaced fish with octopus. There was also one prawn which I was saving until the end, but by the time I got there I wasn't hungry anymore. Every bit as good as the first experience, ie delicious. The bill (which included two rum and cokes) came to less than $15.
Stopped at a little convenience store on the way back up the hill and bought some packaged cold meat. Mixed up a Havana Club and Coke when I got back to the room and listened to Yes’ Fragile album ...

We are running a bit behind schedule due to the rescue on Wednesday
night. We entered the first lock around 9.30 am which was pretty amazing. It
took about an hour to be lifted about 30 feet and then sailed up to the ...
