Panama Canal Boat Trip


And, coolest thing of all! Of the 300+ pilots that guide the ships through the canal, only two are women. This woman is one of them. Every ship, without exception, must hand over control to one of the highly trained Panama Canal pilots for the transit through the canal. I was excited that we not only were guided by a woman, but I got to talk with her as we waited to get off the boat.

    Very cool! I can’t wait to check out some of the links you posted. Too bad I can’t look at work as I also sift through my huge stacks of paper.
