Our second stop was Colon, Panama.....

We were here from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.   This is a very small city - one of the taxi drivers said there was only 16 streets.  It was raining, but Celebrity did have an umbrella in the cabin, and some took them.

There is a small shopping Centre right outside the ship -

Not too much here, just a grocery store, electronic store, and a few souvenir stores. 

I like to look around a grocery store - I bought vinegar flavoured with onion ($1.45) and honey mustard spread ($3.50).   If you need any alcohol, go to this store....

Nice looking police officer......

Once you toured the grocery store, sat outside under a shelter for a little while, and bought a few souvenirs, that was it.  I would have liked to eat lunch - there was a snack bar in the grocery store, but there was no place to eat outside.  I could have gone to the casino for lunch, and there was a McDonalds a cab ride away, but it was raining, so I went back to the ship. 

The next day, I heard lots of complaints about the tours - horrific traffic, missed lunches, that it had rained all day and the bus windows were fogged up. The town of Portabelloe was poor and very small.  I think there was some refunds on the tours.
