          Traversing the Panama Canal

          ... there were three chambers and we descended about 31 feet at this last lock. We could see the Bridge of the Americas in the distance and the high rise buildings of Panama City peeping above the hills surrounding the canal. As we passed through this lock the light was beginning to fade and once through we sailed under the bridge in the gathering twilight. The lights of the city became brighter as we emerged into the open waters of the Pacific Ocean. It had taken ...

Because it was so close to our apartment, the Multiplaza Pacific Mall would become one of our "go to" hangouts in Panama City. Catherine and Mommy spent a couple of afternoons shopping there, Sam Jackson and I both got haircuts, we tried several of their American-style restaurants (including P.F. Chang's on our first day), and Caroline and I even had a "date night" at one of their VIP ...

          Because we were hanging out in the shade we seemed to have missed the first call to board the boat. This meant that we did not get first choice of seats, which were the upper deck open air seats with great views. Instead we ended up below seated at a table next to a big side window inside the air conditioned cabin. Since Phyllis' mother was with us this was a good option. (Also because, later, as we went through ...

          ... I expected it to be, and most of the time that was a very good thing. I think I would revisit Peru or Guatemala before I came back here, but I'd still love to do the sailboat thing from Panama to Colombia. We had a lot of highlights on this trip but our beach day in Chiriqui tops them all (closely followed by the sloths). If you've only got a week in Panama, head to Boquete! I think I could live there and, who knows, maybe we'll go there to visit Kim and ...

At this point the ship stopped completely whilst a person is evacuated from the ship due to ill health. This process took a mere ten minutes, as the ambulance arrived and the person and his luggage were removed from the ship. Once we cleared the second lock, we travelled through a small lake as we approached the ...
