Yesterday we started the day with a visit to the most famous place in Panama - the Canal. The visitor's center has a lookout above the locks, a film telling the story of the construction of the canal and a brief history of the country, and a museum showing some of the engineering equipment used to complete the locks, displays of insects that have been found in the area and a ship simulator making you feel you are on the bridge as the ship moves through the locks.There is a computer where you type in your sir name and see if any men with your name worked on the canal. GALE - my maiden name showed up 8 times. I found it all interesting and enjoyable.
