Day 2: We made it...Now in Panama!!

After our red-eye flight out of LAX (left at 2:00 AM), we are now in Panama City. We are staying at the Country Inn Suites right on the Isthumus to the Panama Canal. A steady stream of container and cruise ships travel thru going North and South. This is a picture from the balcony of our room.
In the distance is the "Bridge of the Americas" which is the Pan American highway that connects all of the Americas-North, South and Central.
The weather here is a "pleasant" 86 degrees with about 70-80% humidity....ouch, I think I miss my dry heat back home!

Today we visited the Old Panama City "Casco Viejo" , which was the heart of the city during the first decades of the 20th century. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1997, it is a city within the city and great for a walking tour.
That's me with my new Panama hat...can't go home without one when you come to Panama.
Ok, so tomorrow we take a one day cruise of the canal and locks....should be beautiful and interesting. See you afterward!
