Line handling on the Panama Canal

06 December 2012 | Panama
Great to start then storm on the Pacific side

Last week we joined Greg (Skipper), Danny, Bob and Stephania on Sweet Dreams for a canal transit. It provided us with first hand experience of line handling which was great. Not so difficult but you have to stay alert.

Today we took a taxi with bob and Vicky from FoxSea to the foothills of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta to a place called Minca. It sits in heavy rainforest. Basic concete dwellings ,cafes, and restaurants and music and children everywhere. We visited a local artist, Leila, and her agronomist husband Guillame and I plan to take an afternoon class with her to make paper and build a visual diary - I'm looking forward to it, they are delightful people. Above the town via the stairs next to the church, across the concrete basketball field for the high school and up 200 stairs sits a hostel with hammocks, cold beer and views to the coast. Its run by Stephanie who is English and a refugee from London. Her dog Lola took us for a walk through the forest earlier in the day - very deliberate and well mannered
