Hi Mrs. Druckmiller and the kids from Room 106!
Here are the answers to your questions:
1. The flight to Panama was 5 hours long. During the flight I drew pictures, read Eve of the Emperor Penguin which was from Magic Treehouse, and watched the movie "Babe."
2. We didn't travel by boat through the canal, but we watched boats go through the canal. The ships have to pass through 3 sets of locks. It takes a ship 8-10 hours to pass through the entire canal. But that's a whole lot less time than sailing around the tip of South America!
3. Besides birds, like toucans and parrots, so far I have seen howler monkeys, coati, agouti, and a humongous beetle on our patio. Eeeeeewww.
My brother took this photo of a toucan
Henry also took this photo of a howler monkey
The coati looks like a raccoon, badger, and a monkey
The agouti looks like a HUGE rat that stands on its back legs.
Today my mom and I visited a garden with a mini-swinging bridge, while my dad and brother Henry went bird watching.
Here's a photo of my room that I share with Henry. My parents told me not to jump between the beds.
