On our third day in Panama, we learned firsthand about the power of a tropical storm during the country's rainy season. We had stopped at the Restaurante Los Lagartos for a nice lunch overlooking Gatun Lake when the rain began pouring down. Initially, we were all seated near the edge of the deck, but as the wind shifted and rain began blowing toward us, we moved closer to the center of the building.
Our afternoon plans (an expedition to "Monkey Island") was postponed because of the storm, but more alarmingly, we heard the next day that nine people perished because of this storm.
