Las Lajas > Panama City 401km


And so on to Panama…oh how it rained!!!  Not continuous but two very heavy downpours.  Added to that we got caught in solid rush hour traffic for ages and were just cooking in our bike gear.  Was very glad to finally get to a hotel and get the rain gear and bike gear off!!

We had a day off the bikes and a tour.  Firstly the old part of the city – lovely architecture, much of it is in disrepair and is slowly being restored.

And of course the Panama Canal where we watched a couple of ships pass through.

Note the grey skies – yep that’s how it was while in Panama, rain each day.
