Erick, the fellow between us , is our Columbian son. He stayed with us for a school year in 1994 in Yellowknife. He arrived in Canada with very little English and have no never seen snow before. He told us he was so happy tand see his first snow fall, but was more than happy the see the end of it 9 months later!! Twenty years later and he is a dentist in his forties with a family, how times change. He was good enough to take time out of his busy schedule and fly from Bogata to Cartagena to visit with us for the weekend.
We had to go into Colon to clear Immigration, the marina operates a free bus into Colon twice a day, otherwise it is a $25 taxi ride. The picture above is a typical street in Colon, now we know why we ere told it is not safe to walk around in the city.
