On the way up the Gatun locks Saturday night we were rafted along side an old maxi yacht with a professional crew (term used here means that they were paid). They really had very little knowledge of what they were doing, but that did not stop them from issuing contradictory orders and shouting alot. The captain of the boat turned to me at one point and using his fingers to point at his eyes said "focus now focus on me". Well ok...
On Sunday we locked down rafted with other cruisers we knew and had a very nice time. Jake really enjoyed the changes in the water levels, while Isabelle wanted only to see one of the fresh water crocodiles. We did not see one, and apparently they are a protected species now as a result of hunting, so no surprise.
