I am making every effort to get a move on. So I have moved on to the Panama Canal. I must have taken hundreds of shots throughout the day of the transit, but I will be mercifully selective in my choice. This picture seems to sum up the whole Panama Canal experience : it is very much a man-made environment, a triumph of concrete, steel and guts over raw nature. Here one of the locomotives is seen gently guiding our ship into the locks, with inches to spare at either side.
