I was in the CZ from Nov 4 1964 thru Aug 25th 1967. I spit that time between Rodman and coco solo. Rode 26 Russian and cuban ships through the canal. Couple of friends that were down there with me are going back for the 2014 Carnival. My dad was through there last year and he said panama city has really changed.
