Our second day was spent heading to the Miraflores locks, the famous Panama canal. We arrived around 9:30am, just arriving ...

You will also see that at 32 metres wide she only has 700m on each side to spare, a very tight fit. The widest ships to travel through the canal were the Iowa class battleships, Iowa, New Jersey, Missouri and Wisconsin, I'll talk more about them in my next entry.
