Panama Canal Railway, Flamenco Island, Panama Canal
Took 6-8 hours (not sure exactly how long…I was asleep for half) to cross through the Panama Canal. It was really cool to see the gates and the changing water levels. It costs cruise ships about $200,000 to cross each time. Crazy!! They’re adding to the canal another lock that saves water in a kind of side tank, but there’s complications, of course, dealing with money. They need billions more to complete. Woah.
These pics are from two different crossings but I can’t seem to keep them straight as we passed through the Panama Canal a grand total of 4 times!!
