Panama Canal

We spent our first evening in Panama at the restaurant at the locks. The elegant restaurant has an outdoor patio overlooking the locks so we watched big container ships being pulled by small rail cars as they passed through the locks.

Later, Chino took us to the top of the highest point in Panama City, where we had a bird's eye view of the locks and the containers waiting transport.

The rows and rows of containers look almost like a city of houses.
