Thanks Jim!… Panama Canal Expansion Photos

DSCN1030On the last cruise I had the pleasure to meet Jim and Diane Bradley who had lived and worked in Panama for many years… Jim as a supervisor keeping the electrical part of the Canal working, and Diane as the admin for high ranking brass.

Jim and Diane were greeted by top officials of the ACP (in english, Panama Canal Authority) and taken on a private tour of the new expansion project (third lane)… Fortunately for us, they chose to shared their close up view of the project, which is on the same scale as the original work from 1904 to 1914 (massive).

BTW: These are the most up to date photos of the project as of April 24th.

Thanks, Jim and Diane, from all of us.

    Really appreciated your sharing these pictures, as we could only imagine what the site would be like. Also your comments in the Constellation Lounge during the transit were most interesting and informative. Jim, yours and Dr. Dave’s contributions made our trip so much more meaningful! Thanks!
