The day we arrived in Panama was actually the 100th Anniversary of the Panama Canal. A few days later we visited the Miraflores Locks of the Canal. It was so amazing to see this expansive project in use.
There’s a big expansion of the canal in the works now, so we got to hear about that, too. While we were there we saw three different enormous ships pass through.
As each ship went through the crew would all wave – it was crazy to think these people hadn’t seen another person off board in probably weeks!
The museum was cool, too, with model ships, trains and trucks that were used to create the canal one hundred years ago.
Olivia and Cliff loved the turtles and other animal exhibits.
It was a great ending to our time in Panama…next it was off to Nicaragua!
