Where can you watch the sunrise over the Pacific and the sunset over the Atlantic?

Curious as to how long it will take for someone to come up with the right answer.

Very good. That didn't take long at all.

What most folks don't realize is that the Panama Canal doesn't actually run east-west, but rather north-south, because Panama is somewhat S-shaped, with the canal running from the north side of the country to the south side. This same S-shape results in places where the Atlantic is to the west and the Pacific is to the eat.
