En heldag vid kanalen
Sommar2013, 11-01-2020
Vi kom till Colon i Panama på morgonen med kryssningsbåten, det var bara att sätta sig på en buss och åka ca: 1,5 tim. innan vi var framme vid Panamakanalen. Där hoppade vi på en båt med plats för 400 personer. Ni var vi bara 7st bussar så runt 340 personer. Det var varmt i luften men regn till och från, fanns platser under tak att sitta på. båten hade guider som hela tiden pratade om kanalen och dess historia på minst 4-5 olika språk. Vi åkte ca:30 min fram till den första slussen som skulle ta oss mer 8 meter innan vi kon ut på en sjö. Häftigt att dessa slussar styrs endast med själv tryck inget pumpande av vatten, Sedan åkte vi vidare på sjön och blev bjudna på dricka och mat under tiden vi närmade oss nästa sluss. Denna var i två steg så 8 +8 meter till skulle vi för att komma ner till havsnivå med Stilla havet. Slussarna (dom gamla) är ganska långa och det kostar massor att åka här, allt styrs på vikterna. Vikt på last och båt, de största containerfartygen får betala runt 1,2 miljon/ resa. Panama får in 40% av hela sin kassa varje år, detta används till gamla, skola och sjukvård för alla invånare. Ändå ser man vilket fattigt land detta är men också rikt och modernt. Enn upplevelse som tar runt 4tim samt 2+2 timmarbuss åter till Colon. Båten lägger till i huvudstaden Panama.
Excellent guide - No lunch!

Edgar was a knowledgeable tour guide and we were fortunate to have had him as our tour guide. However, contrary to the advertised description of the tour it does NOT include lunch. Beware of this because you will need to take a snack with you. The trip is long and you will get hungry along the way. This is important!
