A successful trans Panama Canal Cruise
The Island Princess is the only ship here today. We have enough time to get a good breakfast and still make our meeting location, the Explorers Lounge. When we do arrive at the lounge, we find that, due to a shortage of immigration officers, the disembarking is about an hour behind schedule. As it turns out, the process through immigration was relatively quickly and soon we were on our way.
We picked up our car and made our way to the Rodeway Inn on Beverly Blvd across from CBSTV City. The room turned out to be a smoking room so we had to have the room defumed by an air cleaner – only slightly effective. We will move to a different room tomorrow. We did some food shopping for the weekend and had a nice dinner at my sister’s house, and then back to our motel room..
The windows had to stay open all the time to air our the cigarette smoke odor.
