Comments: Greetings. God Bless all here. A new day has dawned and it is back to the old grime. Yes, Mon must pick up the load and get about taking care of business. I miss my cup of Cafe Duran this morning......but not to worry, I have a shipment coming in from Panama any day now....maybe today or maybe tomorrow....God Willing. Then I'll start the day right! I guess that is what I miss most about Panama when I am away.....among other things! Well, I know you all must get out and do what you all must do....so, Hasta La Vista, I'll Be-Back.

Comments: I lived in Gamboa, CZ 1968-1970. I was seven-eight years old. It was great having a jungle for a backyard. I learned to swim at the pool in Gamboa. I also swam in the Canal. We all liked living there except for my mother so we went back to the States after two years. I want to visit again and will someday.

Comments: Greetings! God Bless all here. Isn't grand to have a day off from work or whatever. No pressures or worries. No boss telling you what to do.....yea, kind of reminds me of the days in the old Canal Zone when we would play hooky! It would be a really hot summer day like today......except in Panama most afternoons were really hot and one searched for shade or where too cool off in a real hurry. A swimming pool would be great! But when we all felt adventureous, what we did like other CZ kids was to go swimming in the third set of locks over by Cocoli or maybe fishing in the canal water way. Yes, those were the days......we thought they would never end......but they did. Life is still Beautiful! So, enjoy your day off! One thing for sure the load will still be there in the morning......yes, Mon. BHS Class of 1957

I wish to thank my new friend, Manny Manuel, Jr. for allowing me to not only see where my father, Randy, worked, but to actually assist in passing a ship throught the Gatun Locks! I will forever be greatful. Thank you, Manny! Also thanks to Maritza Arango. With her help, I was able to re-live my childhood adventures and see Panama and the Zone as an adult. Thank you, Miti! Most of all, I thank the Lord God for allowing this opportunity to resolve issues in my past and I give him the glory! Thank you, Jesus! I shall make an earnest effort to go back at least every 6 weeks (living in Miami sure helps!) should any of you still living there wish to email me, please do so. Once again, thank you

Comments: WOW! Where have 42 years gone? I celebrated my 21st birthday at the home of Bob (KZ5RJ) and Lillian Seiler in Diablo Heights. I lived in Fort Lauderdale, FL., at the time and met them on amateur (ham) radio back in 1956 or so. Daily, Bob and I ran "phone patch traffic" between the CZ and the US. After many, many radio contacts, Bob and Lil invited me down for the summer of 1958. I met so many great and wonderful people there. One was Herbie Green, KZ5HG. Herbie got me hitched on a ride through the CZ on the SS Angelo Petri, sitting proudly with the ship's radioman the entire trip. I remember Virginia, KZ5VR ( the Vicious Redhead). It goes without saying, that much has happened since those days, but I have true, fond memories of the CZ and the many friends that I met there.

Comments: I was surfing the web and stumbled on to your site. I am a BHS '72 graduate who has been away form Panama for 26 years. I also attended CZC for two years before coming to the US to finish college. My mom and Dad both worked for the DOD in Panama for 35 years which means that my brother Jaime, my sister Ivette and I all were educated in the Canal Zone from Kindergarden thru JC. My mother is Panamanian therfore I still have strong ties back in Panama. Your site has brought back some great memeories of BHS and the CZ. IT was place where you could get the best of both worlds. A small town atmosphere of protection when needed and a large city life when wanted. I,m interested in hooking up with my "pandilla" from the "breezway. Michael and Kevin O'Connor, Eddie Duran, Guy Nacchio, Franz Manfredi, and anyone else who remembers. All the "lads" from the first ever Varsity Soccer team at Balboa, the Davis bothers, Harari, Franchesi, Dupuis etc. I have contact with many other Balboa and CZC graduates if anyone needs info please email. Tremendous site!!! Keep it up.
