Leaving Central America

July 6th 2007
Checked out and caught a bus to Panama City. All well, we arrived around 5 pm and found that most of the hotels were full - probably because it’s Friday. We checked into an overprized Hotel Montreal, had dinner and checked our emails.

Moved out of Hotel Montreal and into Hotel California, which is much better value. We went around Panama City looking for a new charger for the camera batteries, as the other one was broken on the boat. Did some general shopping and just relaxed.

Once again hanging out and relaxing in Panama City. We went to see the canal - not that interesting to my thinking, but I guess it's a must see here. It was not very photogenic or pretty though. We noticed there are lots of Maersk containers, and there was even a model of a Maersk ship in the canal museum.

Bored with Panama City now, just hanging around waiting for our flight out of here. We are really looking forward to starting the South American leg of our journey - it's going to be completely different I think.
