Did you just get Panama Canal ed?
We headed into Panama and realized, "This place is crazy dangerous. It is also so poor and ultra sad." Instead of sightseeing too long we took a taxi to the canal. This was muy interesante. When the US lost control of the canal 11 years ago the government decided to charge you insane amounts of money to use it. What pray tell is my version of insane?
For example: A cruise ship=$400,000
A cargo ship= $250,000
From this point forward I declare: When someone takes advantage of a situation or charges too much money for something I will refer to it as being...................Panama Canal ed!!
