On Tuesday, Nov 3rd we arrived at the entrance to the Panama Canal. For us this was a much anticipated highlight of the cruise, one of the main reasons we had chosen this particular trip. We were up early and on deck about 6-30am. We were due to pick up the pilot at this time and then reach the first of the locks at 8am. We could see the coast of Panama in the distance and we passed many cargo ships all lined up waiting for their turn. We grabbed a ...
... tropical dry forest was also fun. Don't try to adjust for our shot of the two toed sloth pictured here. He seemed to prefer being upside down as opposed to what we would consider the proper orientation. After turning in our bikes, we visited the new BioMuseo, which covers Panama's origins, biodiversity and considerable human influences.

That only confirmed he was onto a good thing, however it suited me as the stadium was quite a few miles from the hotel and I really didn't need to be standing in dark streets after ...
... reputation for laziness. Brittany read that they climb down about once a week to poop and expressed some disappointment at our poor timing. If they only reason they move is to do that then I'm just fine with them sitting still on a branch! From the edge of the forest we could see at least 30 massive ships patiently waiting in line to get through the canal. I think there were even more but they eventually faded into a haze in the distance. It's too bad we ...
