            from mui erkun Added 168 0 0

            Our second time to the Panama Canal, this time we did just a partial transit that took us through the Gatun Locks to the lake by the same name. Once anchored in the lake, we had an opportunity to get off the ship to do a small-boat cruise and visit the Gatun Locks Visitor Center, where we watched Coral Princess transit back out to the Caribbean without us. We joined the ship in Colon, where a folklore group entertained us before the ship weighed anchor again.

                • General Omar Torrijos in Panama 1976-77


                  from Tom Zimberoff Added 1,416 5 3

                  As a 24-year-old freelance photojournalist in 1976, before Jimmy Carter’s election as president, I dedicated myself to the story of the Panama Canal turnover, anticipating political drama, and, frankly, I was hoping for a scoop with Panama’s media-shy leader, General Omar Torrijos. Apparently, I had the sort of audacity—for a gringo—that earned his favor. After much importuning from the sidelines and then an unexpectedly dramatic introduction, I was encouraged to document his hand in events which culminated in Panama’s overall sovereignty. I was allowed unprecedented access. No other photos exist, for example, of Torrijo’s singular foray walking into the erstwhile American Canal Zone, which wouldn’t exist but for my instigation; to the consternation of the American ambassador. Never before, the General said, had he entered the Canal Zone, and he had sworn not to do so without a new treaty. Consequently, my photos helped mobilize Panamanians to vote in the 1977 plebiscite for the Carter-Torrijos Treaties. They were also published throughout the world, including a Time cover story. Nearly 18,000 negatives and transparencies were shot from 1976 through 1977, illustrating the character of a man, the leader of a tiny country, who stood up to the United States defending his principles and people. I traveled throughout Panama and accompanied Torrijos visiting heads of state throughout Europe and in Israel. Early on, I told the General that most Americans thought one south-of-the-border general was pretty much like any other—an oppressive dictator. However, he was an exception to the likes of Pinochet, Stroessner, and Videla—or Castro. These photographs memorialize the fact that Torrijos did indeed “walk into history” and not just “into the Canal Zone,” as he was often quoted as saying about his goal. This presentation was made to his son, Martín Torrijos, now the same age as his father in his heyday, and who had recently been elected president of Panama. He purchased the archive to be included in a memorial to his father being built in Panama. Torrijos was killed in a suspicious plane crash in 1981.
