Panama Canal (MiraFlores Locks)

Cost: 8 US Dollars

The next night I was returning a Coca Cola bottle for my deposit and passed her on a corner up close and she was all jerky offering me her services. She was beautiful and young as I stole a glance while hurrying back to my hotel. “Where is your family,” I thought? Run….
