The flight to Panama was not without its issues, we got some grief because according to the check in girl we couldn't go to Panama without an exit ticket, trying to explain our bikes were there and we were riding North to Costa Rica seemed to confuse them! Finally after much consultation and showing of documents we got to board the flight.
Panama was a shock temperature wise, from a chilly 18 -21 degrees in Bogota to a very hot and humid 35 Degrees C in Panama. The hotel we are in is only a couple of Miles from the airport, its quite expensive and until now couldn't provide a decent wifi connection hence my lack of Comms.
Today we extricated the bikes from Panamanian Customs, all done in 2 1/2 hours of which most was the issuing of the temp import papers we need. This afternoon a trip into the huge metropolis that is Panama City to get insurance (expensive) and to see the canal, specifically the Miraflores Locks (impressive) so another busy day, just had a last wine by the pool, still hot and muggy under the palm trees so not all bad!
