    It’s a full-on second day for me here in Panama:

    Pre-brekkie sightseeing (quick-and-dirty style) in Panama City’s partly dilapilated, partly charming Casco Viejo (old, colonial part of town)…

    Local bus to the Panama Canal (coffee and bread on-the-go), wondering at the engineering masterpiece – very impressive…

    Back to my room to fix my flat rear tire…

    Getting escorted out of town by two local police men on bikes (“Es muyyyy peligroso aquí, señor!“, they told me, though I didn’t see or feel any danger leaving Panama City – but I guess I/the escort made the cops feel more important doing their jobs…)

    A nice and mad afternoon 84 km stint on the bike…

    Setting up camp and crashing at the local fire station in Playa Coronado…

    Lots of sleep despite 28 night degrees Celsium inside the tent…

    Casco Viejo, Panama City...

    City bus in Panama City...

    The Panama Canal...

    The Panama Canal Railway...

    Constructing the Canal. From the Panama Canal Museum...

    Nicolai at the Panama Canal...

    The Panamanian Balboa which equals the Yankee dollar economy...

    These cool locals handed me an even cooler beer when I passed by...

    This is where all the delicious cashew nuts come from...And no, it's not actually a nut!

    On the road again! Hot cycling along the Panamerican Hwy in Panama...

    Upon leaving Panama City I got escorted by the local police for security reasons, on bikes too...

    Free camping at the fire fighters in Playa Coronado, Panama.

    On this day..
