Fifty Miles on the Panama Canal

(Anyone get the title reference? I have a certain folk song stuck in my head…)
We haven’t boated through the canal yet (thats saturday) but we did go to the museum and watched a ship to through the locks. Very cool. Of course Grandad is busy reading a big fat book of all of the history of the canal, so we practically had a guided tour.

Today we went to the old quarter (casco viejo) of Panama City which O really really liked the feel of. Sweet narrow streets, little vendors, beautiful church, colonial architecture… It was recently designated a World Heritage Site so they’re busy restoring all of the old facades. Really a lovely area, I could see spending more time there. We also went in to a bunch of little shops with Molas and masks galore!
