Some clients and I had a wonderful dinner at the Tuscan Grill last night. It is always worth it and I am never disappointed. A good beef carpaccio for an appetizer, a medium rare filet mignon and a couple of bottles of Duckhorn Merlot. Doesn't get much better than that.

Today we left about 0930 for a train trip in the domed rail car south to the Pacific (Panama City) and a bus excursion back. Both the train track and road parallel the canal and it never ceases to amaze me. We were able to see the new big dig, which is six months behind because the European engineers are experiencing the same issues that French and then US folks did 100 years ago. Our tour guide was a very colorful retired Army SGT Major Paratrooper (82nd Airborne) who couldn't have been better. Lots of great scenery, good company and educational in every way. This is my fourth trip to the Canal region and I learn something every time.
