She said the greatest challenge of the trip was the language barrier. Most of the people they met spoke Portuguese and very little English. But she said, we were able to work it out.
She and one other Rotarian and three non-Rotarians went to Brazil to get a better understanding of a water Brazilian purification project. Every day was busy, traveling around southern Brazil, attending Rotary Clubs, conducting radio interviews and meeting local people.
She said that Brazil is very much a male dominated county but she did have an opportunity to visit an all women’s Rotary. Asked if she would do it again, she said, she would in a heart beat!
