    ... he was charged 36 cents!

    Whatever the price, it has to be paid in cash via wire transfer at least 48 hours before the transit. This must be a massive money spinner for the Panamanian government as there were a lot if vessels already lined up waiting for their turn. Even tourist boats like ours must have an official canal pilot on board to guide them through the waterway - ours just arrived via launch.

    Our guide also explained that about 35% of the ...

    ... of horror stories I didnt actually end up getting asked for proof of exit. So that was a good hurdle to pass, and now I am almost in the continent.

    The city is quite big, well developed, and just gorgeous with sky scrapers right onto the water. I stayed in the old town, which is a gorgeous part away from the main city. Its full of the hostels in the city, and even the president of Panama lived a couple streets away.

    ... The others went for lunch at the hotel restaurant but Gina and I wanted to eat something different.

It was much quieter than ...

    ... bit dated but still did the job very well.

    It took about ten minutes to fill the chamber, and the water to rise 29 feet along with us and the massive freighter. When the chamber was filled the doors in front were opened and we would move into the next chamber behind the freighter. After three chambers we were now 85 feet above sea level and in Lake Gatun. One surprising advantage of being in fresh water is that the barnacles that Orca had on its lower hull, would ...

    ... 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 ...
