... bus, but instead a brightly colored old American school bus arrived, a guy shouted at me to jump on but i sad, no, metro bus...he continued shouting and every 3rd word out of his mouth was metro so I though, ok then. In spite of the fact the it was 6.30 the bus was packed, and traffic was horrid. Apparently I had arrived at the worst possible time of the day. Still the chicken bus, they are called (sadly no chickens on board) was an experience ...
... were no manta rays or sharks! But it was so busy. A wet market at one end and a restaurant area at the other. We walked back to the hotel, along the pan American highway leading along the water front. It was really pretty! Lots of skyscrapers, chicken buses moving past and life happening in the parks. Then it began to rain. So typical. We headed out to a local place for dinner, again it wasn't great. So best forgotten. But then went out to a bar in the ...

The average cost for a ship to go through is somewhere between $300,000 - $400,000 but it saves them over 8000km and 2 weeks ...
... was about to board. We pushed back from the gate on time about 30 minutes after I boarded. Shortly after that we took off with no problems.
Overall I definitely enjoyed Panama City. It was a lively city with fun people. It wasn't too touristy, and I liked it that way. The US Dollar was the official currency, so it made it really easy to purchase goods. I definitely look forward to returning here at some point because I feel like I left some stones unturned. Until next ...
