Panama City

Wed 5 May 2010 00:59
Our short stay in Panama City is about to end. The Galapagos Islands are going to be difficult to get to though as there has been no wind for 7 weeks. We intend to stop at Las Perlas Islands, about 35 miles south, for a day or two.
Panama City is very modern with a skyscraper skyline and glitters at night.
Thats us in the middle
On a branch of the peninsular we are anchored off is a Smithsonian Institute research facility, which we walked round and we finally saw a 2-toed sloth. They are obviously a bit quick for us - they sleep for 20 hours a day and hide in the leaves the rest of the time!
Ball of fluff
Ah, there he is!
Strangers to us, but ordinary to the North Americans visiting were a couple of raccoons.
About to go ahsore for a cocktail, so keeping this short. We might be able to get wi-fi in Galapagos, so we hope to have some more wildlife shots then.
