Panama City and Canal

The next morning we woke early to catch yet another puddle jumper flights from David to Panama City, where we were met by our guide and driver to head out on our Panama city tour. First we stopped at the Miraflores Locks, and watched a US military ship pass through the locks. We wandered through the museum and looked at how the canal was made, how the locks work, as well as learned about the future expansion plans for the canal. After perusing the exhibits, we continued on to Casco Antiguo, the old colonial section of the city that is in the process of being restored. After seeing some mian sights in this areas, we continued on to La Vieja, the part of Panama that was abandoned and burned when pirates attacked in the 1670s. We walked around to see some of the ruins of the old buildings.
