Our team arrived safely in Panama City with minimal customs-headache at about 8:45pm Central Time. Fortunately the time zone here is the same as in Huntsville, so jet lag is not a concern.
Cristina and Conrado of CATHALAC met us outside of customs and drove us about 30 minutes to the City of Knowledge where our Holiday Inn is located. We caught a glimpse of the canal and the city itself is amazing. Our friends from CATHALAC explained how quickly the city has become covered with skyscrapers over the past fifteen years mostly due to foreign investment. The Holiday Inn is a ten minute walk from CATHALAC’s headquarters, so we’ll set out around 8 tomorrow morning to start our lessons and tour the city and the canal.
Our team is fairly tired after a long day of travelling, but overall it has been a very good day. We’re all excited to get to work bright and early tomorrow.
