Following the USA Mexico Friendship Conference and Project Fair, Polly and Past President Allan Cady remained in Mexico a few more days traveling from Acapulco to Orizaba, sight seeing along the way.
On November 1, Allan was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of the Valley of Orizaba.  Using a translator, he told the club about Mesa West Rotary, discussing The Rotary Foundation, Polio Plus and the Mesa West Hearing Project in Guaymas, Mexico.  As there is no audiologist in Orizaba, the members were very interested in our project for hearing.
While in the area, their hosts invited them to participate in the annual Dia de Muertos activities, causing Polly to write, "This is such an important part of the Mexican culture.  Actually, it is beautiful and respectful."
