Boquete - Valley of the eternal rainbow.jpgTuesday January 31 – Milagros Sanchez Pinzón is the premiere historian for Chiriqui Province and Boquete in particular. She authored the book Boquete, Rasgos de su Historia in 2001 and Boquete: Valley of the eternal rainbow in 2006 -- research and photos illustrating the rich history of Boquete and its founding families. Luz Graciela Joly Adames, Tenured Professor of Anthology, Department of History, Faculty of Humanities, Autonomous University of Chiriqui, will translate. I have asked Milagros to bring photos of the early history of Boquete.

We (Marcelyn and I) attended this very interesting talk this morning at the BCP Theater. It was an SRO (standing room only) event. People were sitting in the aisles and on the floor and on the edge of the stage. Penny Barrett deserves extra special recognition for bringing these very interesting and highly qualified speakers to Boquete.

I have an unsophisticated consumer grade camera and took several pictures during the talk. Unfortunately the pictures of Milagros were not good due to several factors, including the equipment used, the experience of the operator (me), and the lighting arrangement on the stage. But I am posting a couple of the pictures in case some of you may be interested in seeing them because you were not able to attend this presentation.

Milagros Sanchez Pinzón and Luz Graciela Joly Adames were asked if they would provide their historical materials as used in this presentation at the BCP Theater for access to the public. They said yes.

There are 50 pages of pictures and annotation that is very enlightening about the history of Boquete specifically and Chiriqui Province more generally.
