The bomb squad and drug squad acted as our wake up call this morning...poking the head out of 'Carlos the total legend of the universes' truck, an intense inspection was underway, a pack of sniffer dogs had there snouts busy in action, a whole host of flexible mirrored apparatus was sweeping away under the carriage, big guns and bullet proof armour with mouths and eyes were giving us a grilling... the UK passports raised a few yet bemused smiles...after 30 mins all was fine. Carlos had parked right on the outskirts of Panama City. Another fond fare well was bid and a well earned day off was much needed.
A short bus ride took us over the west coast entrance of the Panama Canal...all the stories and tellings since I was a little boy and finally this amazing feat of engineering was filling my gaze...superb.
Found a Hostel and just sat...it was all we could manage, a day of wonderful sitting.
