A Travellerspoint blog


overcast 85 °F

We made it to Panama safe and sound after a gloriously uneventful flight. Dave and Pearl were unexpectedly bumped up to Business class while Sue tortured Henry back in Economy with 5 hours of algebra. Being Pearl's seat mate involved playing endless hands of "Too Many Monkeys" card game, pillow fluffing for her ladyship, and fetching fallen markers. (Will someone please invent marker on a rope?)

Many thanks to the Hoffman family for recommending the Radisson Summit hotel 10 miles away from Panama City along the canal zone. From our room, we're enjoying great views of the rainforest treetops twittering with bird activity. Henry has already spotted a Crimson Backed Tanager, Magnificent Frigatebird, and Social Flycatcher. This is a case of the student teaching the teacher.

After a little birding around the hotel's jungle-like grounds (Dave has been incessantly whistling the theme music from Jurassic Park) and swimming in the pool, we are calling it an early night. Tonight is the first trial of Henry and Pearl sharing a queen-size bed. Let's hope that the pillow Berlin wall that we've built will keep the peace. There are 105 nights on the road ahead of us...

Big plans for tomorrow!
