Hey Alex, I took a boat trip for weeks to reach the destination where it took a long time.
Um, Jimmy, I would like to go, but I have two days off. If it takes a day and a half, it would be great.
Hey John, I want to build a canal in panama. You must contact Columbia for me.
Yes, Mr. President, I would like you to contact them immediately.
Can you build canal, I pay you 3 million.
No they want you pay more!
The United States sent troops to help in the fight against the Colombians. As soon as Panama was free, it agreed to let the United States build the Panama Canal.
They build Canal 10 year, The Canal have is 40 miles long. It cost over $350 million to build. More than 5,000 people who worked on the canal died because of accidents and disease.
Now they have a traveling through the Panama Canal took less than half a day. Ships carrying goods could now get to their markets faster. Countries could send their navy ships quickly between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
