Day 123 – Panama City, PA to Cartagena, CO

Day 123 – Panama City, PA to Cartagena, CO      12/22/10      Mileage: 0 riding / 1 hour flight

I had some coffee with my morning wifi and was out the door at 8:30 to tour the famous Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal. I was really looking forward to this and it was well worth it. I got to see two ships transit out of the locks along with a 50′ sailboat…pretty cool! They also had a short movie and some nice exhibits.

I spent about 2 hours there all together, then it was off to the airport to catch my flight to Cartagena, Colombia…country # 11! The flight was short and uneventful and I was jazzed to be in South America finally! I parked myself at the Casa Viena and immediately walked out to the old city to see the sights. It was already dark, but I took tons of pictures anyway. Old town Cartagena is a very photogenic place…there are great pictures lurking everywhere you point your camera. I’ll let the pictures tell the story…

After walking around I had a light dinner of salmon ceviche and vino blanco, and followed that up with a few drinks at a cool little bar that makes a mean caipirinha! Don’t ask me how I know…
