..so getting out of Venao was interesting.... after trying to hitch for a couple of hours (3 cars went past).... we managed to get a ride with an accountant.... who turned out to be supa friendly... and drove us 3 towns further than we asked! He even gave us a cd of "musica tipica panama' (panamenian music!)...which we were listening to in the car! nice guy!!
anyway, we did well getting to the city in great time, and found ourselves some accomodation....
We each had quite a list of supplies to pick up in the city... so spent 2 whole days wandering shopping malls looking for bargains and AC to escape the heat!!
The city itself aint that bad.... its busy busy, and very developed. Lots of old US school buses painted up brilliantly & crazy traffic (and taxi drivers to match). It has lots of casino's ...which we steered clear ofWe checked out the canal... and yes, its pretty interesting. the actual mechanics arent all that complicated, but more so the whole system that goes with it (power generation etc) that really make it impressive for its day...
anyway.... we ended up with a trip to colombia.... via Yacht!!
