The city of Colon on the Atlantic side of the canal is west of Panama City on the Pacific side! Here's a map.


East-West Mountains (6 Nov 1998)
Julie Time (16 Feb 2001)
Recently this telephone conversation took place in the continental U.S.:

A: "What time is it where you live?"
B: "1:30"
A: "That's what time it is here, also, but I'm in a west coast state and you are in an east coast state!"
B: "How can that be?????"

It happened between the western part of Florida and the eastern part of Oregon on October 25th at 1:30 a.m. At that time, the Floridian was in Central Standard Time, and the Oregonian was in Mountain Daylight-Savings Time, which are the same.
