Left at 8:00am in the rain and were at the Panama border at 9.  Not too much to mention about this crossing as it went fairly smooth and they weren't busy like the others. We were on the road again in a couple hours.  Stopped for lunch in a town called David (pronounced Dahveed).  A couple in the restaurant noticed us because I guess we don't really blend that well with our biker attire and map spread out on the table.  They were leaving the same time as us and happened to notice the Canada stickers on the bike.  Just so happens, the woman was originally from Saskatchewan...she was a bridesmaid many years ago for a Theil lady that Leo knows from Leoville.  So there we were in the parking lot in Panama talking about common acquaintances...wild.  Since we've left the US, Panama is the most modern country we've seen.  The dirt is dark red and purple(ish) with rolling hills making for a pretty nice background for bike riding.  The people are once again friendly, polite and helpful.
