Entering the Canal

Palpable excitement on the ship’s decks at 6 am.  This is a partially completed bridge near the entrance, called the Atlantic Bridge.  The whole thing is amazing, starting here.  And it was also tragic; so many workers died of illness and accident.  Engineering (and political) feats come with quite a cost.  There was much failure before there was success.  Reading about it is fascinating; seeing it is quite a wonder.
