Checked emails and then headed out to get the on the Hop on Hop off bus for a city tour, Today was the canal route went to the Miraflores Locks watched a big ship carrying a load of cars go though the the locks was interesting seeing it from the land side, I did a cruise through the Canal a few years ago so now have seen both LOL, then back on the bus to Casco Antiguo the old Quarters did the walking tour some great old buildings. Lots of churches and a lot of building that only the walls are standing. Then it was a walk along the water front back to the hotel mailing a couple postcards and picking up a couple beers to have while working on my travel blog.
