Welcome

i;








The Rainbow City Reunion Committee for the class of 1968 welcomes all of
you. The events planned throughout the week are intended for the class to travel
together, allowing us time to enjoy the events and each other. This program contains
all the reunion activities with space for you to record special memories of each event.
You wilt find pictures from our yearbook we hope you enjoy. We are sure there will be
a lot of laughter while we remember those days so long ago. There's a place for you to
collect names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses to stay in touch with
each other after our reunion.
The committee has really enjoyed planning the reunion and the events in
hopes of providing activities that will please each of you. This is also an opportunity for
those in our class that have moved away to see the progress of our country, Panama.
There is a lot still to be done for the country to continue to progress, but we should all
take pride in the strides the country has made.
We look forward to seeing all of you and know we will experience the joy of
our class.

Panama City, Panama
History Panama City has been on the move, geographically, as well as figuratively, for the past 300
years. In fact, you could call it the world's only moveable fiesta.
The original Isthmian headquarters of Balboa and the Spanish was Adcla on the Atlantic coast near the
-Sam Blas island of Mulatupo. The first governor also known as Pedrarias, paused only to behead Balboa
before relocating the miniature colony to the healthier and drier Pacific coast where he founded what is
now Old Panama, a photogenic disposition of ruins.
Panama grew and prospered at its new site and was a sizeable township when it attracted the larcenous
attention of the English pirate, Henry Morgan. After Morgan and his men marched into Old Panama sing-
ing "There'll be a hot time in the Old Town Tonight, the Spaniards opted to move the fiesta again to the
more defensible peninsula where the Casco Viejo, or Old Compound now stands.
Along with them went the Golden Altar, thought by experts on religious art to have been made in Ecuador, which had been concealed
from Morgan's men. The altar is a prime tourist attraction today. Also in the Casco Viejo are the President's Palace of the Herons
and the restored National Theatre. Plaza Bolivar and Plaza Herrera have also been restored. In the 273 years from the rebuilding of
Panama City behind the walls of the Old Compound to the end of World War II the fiesta that is Panama City moved no further than to
about where El Panama Hotel now stands but in the last few decades, the pace has quickened.
The growth of the city was restricted to a relatively narrow strip between the coast and the border of the U.S. administered Canal
Zone. In recent years suburbs and shopping centers have spread rapidly outwards and now that the canal Zone has been handed
back to Panama the city has begun to move over the once confining border.
Some historians call Panama City, Panama "the movable city" because it has been relocated several times during the past 300 years.
When the first Spanish governor arrived on the isthmus, he wisely moved the capital from Adcla on the Caribbean
and established Panama City on the healthier and drier Pacific coast. Today, only photogenic ruins remain of
Old Panama City; the English pirate Henry Morgan looted, sacked, and burned the place to the ground. The
Spaniards moved the capital and their treasured "Golden Altar" to the more defensible peninsula, now called
Casco Viejo.


Travelers should plan to see the Altar along with the architectural treasures found in Plaza Bolivar and Plaza ..1
Herrara, including the President's Palace of the Herons and the recently restored National Theater. For 90
years, Panama City's growth was restricted to a narrow strip of land between the sea and the border of the U.S.-
controlled Canal Zone. Modern Panama City, with buildings similar to those found around Miami Beach, is actu-
ally a series of suburbs about five miles west of the Casco Viejo. Within hours of the transfer of the canal to Panama, growth began
again near the city center as buildings quickly sprouted and spread across the previously sealed off border.
Because of its proximity to the Canal, Panama City earned the title "The Crossroads of the World," and the 450,000 residents are a
mixture of all the travelers who stopped here to rest awhile and decided to stay on (or at least leave evidence of their visit behind
them). The city has a cosmopolitan vitality similar to San Francisco, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro, and Hong Kong, set off with competing
rhythms from tropic tamboritos and the hard-cash tinkling of slot machines. There is a saying that "nights are too short" in Panama
City, where drinking has become a full-time occupation for many. Residents claim that the consumption of alcohol has medical bene-
fits, since it keeps away any mosquitoes that bring malaria. Bartenders are sworn to keep secret the fact that malaria hasn't been a
threat in Panama for the past quarter-century.

The word "Panama" is said to mean "an abundance of fish" in the native Indian language, and almost every restaurant serves items
from the Atlantic or the Pacific or the rivers in between them. With hundreds of restaurants to choose from, you can find great Central
American food as well as meals rivaling the best dishes served in Miami, Tokyo, Hong Kong, or Bombay.

Tourist guides frequently refer to Panama City as "a bargainer's paradise" or "a shopping Mecca." Because of numerous free trade
zones, shopping is the second most popular occupation in the city. Driving in from the airport on the Tumbo Muerto road, one passes
the Centro Commercial Los Pueblos, which advertises itself as the biggest shopping mall in Central America. For a more "authentic"
experience, one might try to visit the early morning, wharf side market at Salsipuedes, where produce and fishing boats jostle for
space to sell their bounty. -

The Panama Canal was called "One of the seven wonders of the modern world" when it was constructed, and it
is still a mighty impressive endeavor. Many visitors are surprised how much of the canal looks like a wide, slowly *
flowing jungle river instead of a highly mechanical system of pumping stations and locks. One of the best places "
to view the canal is only an hours drive from Panama City, in the Soberania National Park. While you are there,
you will probably get to see huge turkey vultures soaring and circling overhead. These huge birds are so numer-
ous that locals refer to them as the "Panamanian Air Force."


I






Things to do in Panama City
Day life Shopping: visitors from all over the world are received and sell their
products, many at duty-free prices. Tours: first and foremost, see the Canal;
to visit Panama without checking out the Canal would be like visiting Niagara
without seeing the Falls!


Nightlife Casinos, restaurants, discotheques, bars, and floorshows. The
rhythm of the tropics is alive and well.


People Panama has been called a melting pot, but actually it is a sancocho pot, as in the local dish. All ingredients are
there and contributing their own flavor, but keeping their own identity in the process. Here is a sample of the ingredients:
-Criollos-lberian-descended Panamanians, as proud of their ancestry as New Englanders are flattered at being
called English.
-Mestizos-The Crioolo-lndian blend that is the non-silent majority in most of Latin America.
-Blacks whose fathers signed on in the then-British West Indies to dig the canal.
This sancocho of people is the specialty of the house only in Panama City. Travel to the Interior, anywhere beyond five
miles from the Canal, in the direction of Costa Rica, and you will be in a land of Criollos and Mestizos.

Tour the City City tours take about two and a half hours, A typical city tour will take in the ruins of Old Panama, Colonial
Panama (El Casco Viejo) and the modern sections.

Visit the Canal Tours of the Canal area usually take about two and a half hours and can be combined with the city
tour. You can also transit the canal. Both partial and full transit are available, depending on the dates.

Visit Mi Pueblito an exact replica of a small interior town at the turn of the century. Government offices, shops, a school
and a tiny church surround a cobblestone plaza, complete with fountain. A museum devoted to the pollera, Panama's
national dress, and folklore shows are offered every Thursday. Recent additions have been replicas of an Afro-Antillean
village and dwellings of the Kuna and Choco Indians.

Watch a folklore show- with colorful typical costume and traditional dances. These are offered by the Tinajas Restaurant,
the Plaza Paitilla Inn Hotel, and Mi Pueblito.Go Eco-Touring-Check out the Metropolitan National Park, The Metropolitan
National Park, situated only 15 minutes from downtown Panama City, is the most accessible rainforest in the region. It is the
only tropical forest in Latin America located inside a major urban center. The MNP and several other protected areas form
the Interoceanic Biological Corridor that stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans.

Amador Causeway-With its spectacular views of Panama City's skyline and of the Panama Canal, the Amador Causeway
is a must-see. The one mile causeway was created by the Americans by connecting four small islands with rocks excavated
from the Panama Canal and served as a breakwater to the Pacific Coast entrance to the Panama Canal.
Today, these small islands, swept by pleasant sea breezes host fine restaurants, scenic bicycle and walking paths (bicycles
for rent at $2 a hour), a Smithsonian Institute of Tropical Research aquarium, souvenir and specialty shops, a cruise port
and a yacht marina.
A good way to enjoy the Causeway is to dine at one of its many restaurants, most of which have ocean or Canal views.
There is a restaurant for every budget from exquisite seafood to simple hamburger fare.
At Cafe Barko, which specializes in seafood, you'll enjoy views of Panama City's skyline and the Panama Canal. At TGIF's
restaurant at the Country Inn and Suites, you view have the best view of the Panama Canal complete with ships passing
under the majestic Bridge of the Americas.

Try Your Luck-Casinos- In Panama City there are casinos in the Caesar Park, Continental and El Panama, and Veneto
Hotels and on Via Estronga. Outside Panama City, the city of Colon on the Atlantic side has a casino in the Panama Canal
Melia Hotel and in David the gateway city of West Panama, there's one in the Gran Nacional Hotel.

Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal

This is the first set of locks situated on the Pacific entrance of
the Panama Canal. The locomotives maneuver the ships
through the locks prior to being raised or lowered 27 feet per
chamber. Twenty six million gallons of water is transferred in
only 7 minutes and all done by gravity. Your bath tub doesn't
drain that fast.

There are three sets of locks in the Panama Canal. On the Pa-
cific entrance are Miraflores, with two chambers, and Pedro
Miquel with one chamber. On the Atlantic is one set of locks
with 3 chambers, the Gatun Locks. Ships are raised a total of
87 feet above sea level into Gatun Lake and then lowered at
the end of their transit into the other ocean. A common mis-
conception is that one ocean is higher that the other, but they
are both at sea level.

Panama City, Panama History Panama City has been on the move, geographically, as well as figuratively, for the past 300 years. In fact, you could call it the world's only moveable fiesta. The originallsthmian headquarters of Balboa and the Spanish was Acla on the Atlantic coast near the Sam Bias island of Mulatupo. The first governor also known as Pedrarias, paused only to behead Balboa before relocating the miniature colony to the healthier and drier Pacific coast where he founded what is now Old Panama, a photogenic disposition of ruins. Panama grew and prospered at its new site and was a sizeable township when it attracted the larcenous attention of the English pirate, Henry Morgan. After Morgan and his men marched into Old Panama singing "There'lI be a hot time in the Old Town Tonight, the Spaniards opted to move the fiesta again to the more defensible peninsula where the Casco Viejo, or Old Compound now stands. Along with them went the Golden Altar, thought by experts on religious art to have been made in Ecuador, which had been concealed from Morgan's meno The altar is a prime tourist attraction today. Also in the Casco Viejo are the President's Palace of the Herons and the restored National Theatre. Plaza Bolivar and Plaza Herrera have also been restored. In the 273 years from the rebuilding of Panama City behind the walls of the Old Compound to the end of World War II the fiesta that is Panama City moved no further than to about where El Panama Hotel now stands but in the last few decades, the pace has quickened. The growth of the city was restricted to a relatively narrow strip between the coast and the border of the U.S. administered Canal Zone. In recent years suburbs and shopping centers have spread rapidly outwards and now that the canal Zone has been handed back to Panama the city has begun to move over the once confining border. Some historians call Pan ama City, Panama "the movable city" because it has been relocated several times during the past 300 years. When the first Spanish governor arrived on the isthmus, he wisely moved the capital from Acla on the Caribbean and established Panama City on the healthier and drier Pacific coast. Today, only photogenic ruins remain of Old Panama City; the English pirate Henry Morgan looted, sacked, and burned the place to the ground. The Spaniards moved the capital and their treasured "Golden Altar" to the more defensible peninsula, now called Casco Viejo. Travelers should plan to see the Altar along with the architectural treasures found in Plaza Bolivar and Plaza Herrara, including the President's Palace of the Herons and the recently restored National Theater. For 90 vears, Panama City's growth was restricted to a narrow strip of land between the sea and the border of the U .S.controlled Canal Zone. Modern Panama City, with buildings similar to those found around Miami Beach, is actually a series of suburbs about five miles west of the Casco Viejo. Within hours of the transfer of the canal to Panama, growth began again near the city center as buildings quickly sprouted and spread across the previously sealed off border. Because of its proximity to the Canal, Pan ama City earned the title "The Crossroads of the World," and the 450,000 residents are a mixture of all the travelers who stopped here to rest awhile and decided to sta y on (or at least leave evidence of their visit behind them). The city has a cosmopolitan vitality similar to San Francisco, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro, and Hong Kong, set off with competing rhythms from tropic tamboritos and the hard-cash tinkling of slot machines. There is a saying that "nights are too short" in Panama City, where drinking has become a fuII-time occupation for many. Residents claim that the consumption of alcohol has medical benefits, since it keeps away any mosquitoes that bring malaria. Bartenders are sworn to keep secret the fact that malaria hasn't been a threat in Panama for the past quarter-century. The word "Panama" is said to mean "an abundance of fish" in the native Indian language, and almost every restaurant serves items from the Atlantic or the Pacific or the rivers in between them. With hundreds of restaurants to choose from, you can find great Central American food as well as meals rivaling the best dishes served in Miami, Tokyo, Hong Kong, or Bombay. Tourist guides frequently refer to Panama City as "a bargainer's paradise" or "a shopping Mecca. Because of numerous free trade zones, shopping is the second most popular occupation in the city. Driving in from the airport on the Tumbo Muerto road, one passes the Centro Commercial Los Pueblos, which advertises itself as the biggest shopping mall in Central America. For a more "authentic" experience, one might try to visit the early morning, wharf side market at Salsipuedes, where produce and fishing boats jostle for space to sell their bounty. The Panama Canal was called "One of the seven wonders of the modern world" when it was constructed, and it is still a mighty impressive endeavor. Many visitors are surprised how much of the canallooks like a wide, slowly flowing jungle river instead of a highly mechanical system of pumping stations and locks. One of the best places to view the canal is only an hour's drive from Pan ama City, in the Soberania National Park. While you are there, you will probably get to see huge turkey vultures soaring and circling overhead. These huge birds are so numerous that locals refer to them as the "Panamanian Air Force." 11

PAGE 18

1 2 Things to do in Panama City Day life -Shopping: visitors from all over the world are received and sell their products, many at duty-free prices. Tours: first and foremost, see the Canal; to visit Panama without checking out the Canal would be like visiting Niagara without seeing the Falls! Nightlife -Casinos, restaurants, discotheques, bars, and floorshows. The rhythm of the tropics is alive and well. People -Panama has been called a melting pot, but actually it is a sancocho pot, as in the local dish. AII ingredients are there and contributing their own flavor, but keeping their own identity in the process. Here is a sample of the ingredients: -Criollos-Iberian-descended Panamanians, as proud of their ancestry as New Englanders are ftattered at being called English. -Mestizos-The Crioolo-Indian blend that is the non-silent majority in most of Latin America. -Blacks whose fathers signed on in the then-British West Indies to dig the canal. This sancocho of people is the specialty of the house only in Panama City. Travel to the Interior, anywhere beyond five miles from the Canal, in the direction of Costa Rica, and you will be in a land of Criollos and Mestizos. Tour the City -City tours take about two and a half hours. A typical city tour will take in the ruins of Old Panama, Colonial Panama (El Casco Viejo) and the modern sections. Visit the Canal -Tours of the Canal area usually take about two and a half hours and can be combined with the city tour. You can also transit the canal. Both partial and full transits are available, depending on the dates. Visit Mi Pueblit -an exact replica of a small interior town at the turn of the century. Government offices, shops, a school and a tiny church surround a cobblestone plaza, complete with fountain. A museum devoted to the pollera, Panama' s national dress, and folklore shows are offered every Thursday. Recent additions have been replicas of an Afro-Antillean village and dwellings of the Kuna and Choco Indians. Watch a folklore show-with colorful typical costume and traditional dances. These are offered by the Tinajas Restaurant, the Plaza Paitilla Inn Hotel, and Mi Pueblito.Go Eco-Touring-Check out the Metropolitan National Park, The Metropolitan National Park, situated only 15 minutes from downtown Panama City, is the most accessible rainforest in the region. It is the only tropical forest in Latin America located inside a major urban center. The MNP and several other protected areas form the Interoceanic Biological Corridor that stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans. Amador Causeway-With its spectacular views of Panama City's skyline and of the Panama Canal, the Amador Causeway is a must-see. The one mile causeway was created by the Americans by connecting four small islands with rocks excavated from the Pan ama Canal and served as a breakwater to the Pacific Coast entrance to the Panama Canal. Today, these small islands, swept by pleasant sea breezes host fine restaurants, scenic bicycle and walking paths (bicycles for rent at $2 a hour), a Smithsonian Institute of Tropical Research aquarium, souvenir and specialty shops, a cruise port and a yacht marina. A good way to enjoy the Causeway is to dine at one of its many restaurants, most of which have ocean or Canal views.

BREAKFAST AT PENCAS On the Amador Causeway Calzada de Amador Frente a la Plaza Iberoamericana Telephone & Fax: (507) 211-3671 MIRAFLORES LOCKS TOUR Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal This is the first set of locks situated on the Pacific entrance o the Panama Canal. The locomotives maneuver the ships through the locks prior to being raised or lowered 27 feet per chamber. Twenty six million gallons of water is transferred i n only 7 minutes and all done by gravity. Your bath tub doesn't drain that fasto There are three sets of locks in the Panama Canal. On the Pa-cific entrance are Miraflores, with two chambers, and Pedr o Miquel with one chamber. On the Atlantic is one set of locks with 3 chambers, the Gatun Locks. Ships are raised a total of 87 feet aboye sea level into Gatun Lake and then lowered at the end of their transit into the other ocean. A common misconception is that one ocean is higher that the other, but they are both at sea level. Panama receives as much as 200 inches of rain per year. This was a determining factor in placing the canal there since 52 million gallons of fresh water is lost to the ocean on each transito
