Unfortunately, when you have two thousand passengers, someone will be injured or become too ill
to continue the voyage. This happened to someone at Puntarenas. The ambulance waits to load
the passanger, luggage and companion for the trip to San Jose. We were informed that the lady
was to be air-lifted back to the U.S. It's comforting to know that you will be taken care of
in the event that does happen. As soon as the ambulance finishes its business, we cast off
and head for the Panama Canal.
