On Saturday August 2, I spoke at the British Society monthly lunch in Ajijic, Jalisco Mexico. The subject was "Panama and the Canal at 100". It attracted the highest attendance this year. 

I spoke after lunch had been served and my presentation was very well received. The question time afterwards was very lively. One American gentleman wanted to know if I was responsible for giving away the Panama Canal, along with President Jimmy Carter, and I replied that he really should read the book and then he would understand why it was the right thing to do in 1976. He did purchase the book and asked me to sign it as did a number of other attendees.
