Chitre to Panama City,Tuesday, 4 December 2012, Day 154

No Photos taken today except for food porn tells you a bit how I am feeling

I am doing a huge catch up I am about 2 weeks behind with the blog so my recollection of events are a bit iffy. A hot run into Panama City and when I hit the bridge crossing the canal the heavens opened a huge rain storm and before I knew it I was soaked to the skin but as I was so close to my final destination decided to press on without putting on my waterproofs which was not wise as traffic turned to gridlock and my piece of shit GPS was about as much use as well as much use as nothing. I had drawn a map on a scrap of paper(old fashioned Tech)  which had disintegrated in the rain so was stopping every 5 minutes asking for directions to Via Brazil and Avieneda de Espana. I ended up on a toll road holding up the traffic whilst I figured out where the hell I was. I finally found the Panama House Hotel  wet and bedraggled I checked in and chilled out. Seemingly it pisses down every day at 10am and again at 2pm in the city so I guess I had been lucky the last couple of days. I went for a huge Calzone Pizza with Paul a guy I had met previously who was also going on the same boat as me and Ryan a Canadian guy who had been there for 3 weeks as he was unable to get on the last boat and was trying to get on the same boat as us to Colombia.
