Comments Great site! My kids, Karl and Karla Kirschner graduated from Balboa in '86.. though they spent the first two years of highschool in Cristobal. It's nice to see that the CZ is alive and well if only in our memories! Does anyone have recent photos of Gatun?

Comments
To whom it may concern/Dear sirs:

My name is Audun Opland and I live in Norway attending my last year of High School. As a part of my classes in Regional Geography, I am now doing a major project on The Panama Canal, with special emphasis on the Panama Canal Zone. I spent a year in Panama as an exchange student, living in the pueblo of Ocú, Herrera; this also being the reason why I chose Panama as the theme for my project.
The site czbrats.com has been immensely helpful already, but if it is not too much of a bother, I would really appreciate if you answered some of the questions I have written down below. It would make my project better, and I would be very grateful for response of any kind.

Your sincerely, Audun Opland.


1) In what ways did life in The Canal Zone differ from life elsewhere in Panamá?

2) In what ways did life in The Canal Zone differ from regular US life?

3) How would you say the Canal Zone has changed since 12.31.99? A Panamanian friend of mine once told me it had become “ugly and untidy.” How do you consider such a statement? What ever became of the plans of turning the Zone into “a new Hong Kong”?

4) How where, in your opinion, the Panamanian attitudes towards the Canal Zone, while the Zone existed?

5) How do you consider US attitudes towards what some has called “the surrender of the Canal?”

6) Do you think it is possible a US government will try getting the Canal back into US hands?

Comments Can anyone confirm if the small pine tree in the former Balboa Police Station parking lot was planted by President Roosevelt on his visit to Panama? They are half way complete on the construction of a large fountain where the police station was. I believe they may flatten the parking lot and this historical tree may need to be saved. If the happen to cut it down before any intervention is done, I will collect the wood and make historical cains out of its limbs........
