|The modern building structures are an architect's dream but the sidewalks are a pedestrian's nightmare.|
We walked through the different parts of the building viewing an exhibit within an open space with a pleasant cross breeze coming through the structure as we absorbed the content on each of the colour-coded information pillars. It was time well spent.
On a Saturday, we did the full day Panama Canal Cruise. We embarked the Pacific Queen cruise ship from Flamenco Island located beyond the Amador Causeway in Panama City. We spent 8 hours on this vessel that took us through the Miraflores Locks and the Gatun Locks from the Pacific side to the Atlantic side.
|Yikes! Change of protocol; a car carrier vessel is brought into the small vessel water lane.|

Within these two months in Panama City we can claim that we did all that a tourist can do in Panama City, i.e. experience the Panama Canal either through the cruise or through a visit to the Panama Canal Museum and viewing deck--we did both, spend time in the Panama Ruins area, Casco Viejo, Flamenco Island, BioMuseo and apparently the three shopping malls located in different parts of the city--the latter not so interesting to us. It is now time for Playa Serena, about an hour away from the City to spend the month of March basking in the sun and strolling along the beach.
