Old Friend

I got a call from my old friend Kirk Trachy this evening. I haven't talked to him in some time but he called to say that he went back to Panama for a visit recently.
He and I were there in 1972 - 73 when the U.S. controlled the Canal Zone. He said some things had changed, but some things remained the same.
I've looked at Panama with Google Earth, but it's hard to tell what's really going on down there. When we were there, the towns inside the Zone were kept immaculate much like military bases here in the states. Palm trees with exotic birds, clay tiled roofs on all the buildings and manicured lawns.
He said a lot of those areas are now in disrepair, but some areas are as good or better than we remembered.
I can't wait until he uploads some photos and video.
Jilda and I are making plan
