I spent the last few days hanging around the hostel and exploring the Panama City area with a bunch of folks that are going to be on the Stahlratte with me.
Lots of fun hanging out with the gang:
We spent a full day being touristy at the Panama Canal:
After checking out the canal, we went over to the Albrook Mall, which is the largest mall in Central America. Very modern, Americanized and jam packed with people..
A couple of the nights we all chipped in some money and cooked a big dinner at the hostel. Lots of beer, rum, wine and good food were had by all.. maybe a little too much 😆
Tomorrow morning all the other riders that will be on the Stahlratte will meet here at the hostel and we’ll ride out together in a big group (should be nearly 20 motorbikes!) to the Carti dock on the Caribbean side. After hoisting the bikes onto the deck, we set sail for 5 days. Along the way we stop in the San Blas Islands before ending in Cartagena, Colombia.
This should definitely be a highly of the trip! A little taste of what’s to come:
