Tuesday, July 17 – Bud Huber and Marcelyn Jandreau traveled the Silk Road in Central Asia earlier this year when they visited Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. They took many photos, and will share their adventure with us. The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes that connected the East and the West. It was central to cultural and commercial interaction between them for centuries. Bud and Marcelyn actually walked along some of the same paths that Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Amir Timur, and Genghis Khan traveled many centuries ago.

Tuesday, July 24 – Pat Chan of Fundacion Spay Panama will speak. Pat recently was voted Panama’s #1 hero in a nationwide contest sponsored by TVN network. Spay Panama has sterilized over 135,000 dogs and cats since its founding. Spay Panama has also been the model for the Boquete and Volcan spay clinics.

Tuesday, July 31 –Milagros Sanchez Pinzón, executive director of Culturama International in David, 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. Milagros will bring photos of the early history of Boquete. The speakers will be introduced by Price Peterson, long time Boquete resident and former U.S. Warden for Boquete.

Bud & Marcelyn are special friends. I got their travelogue emails during this trip.

Most of us will never have the opportunity to travel to these countries. For that reason, I'm excited about this presentation.

There will be a new team taking over the Tuesday Talks starting in August.

They haven't yet published the schedule. That is why this schedule ends with the July 31 talk by Milagros Sanchez.

I'm really looking forward to this talk.
