It was stormy approaching the Panama canal, and for that reason the canal traffic was backed up, so we got a very slow sail through, a chance to look at everything. I took a run around the deck, it was rainy and almost cold, and there was lots to see.
It’s a jungle out there…
These “Mules” pull the ship through the locks. Much to the confusion of some, they are not really mules..
Approaching the locks
Each one slowly drains, taking us down to the next level.
A Panama Canal expert gives a running commentary on the process. It is broadcast all over the ship. “The Canal has never been closed due to lack of water..”
People gather on deck to watch the transit. Many stayed inside, in the comfort of Daniel’s bar, where they are served soup and sandwiches with a view.
