    • ReallyReallyBETTTY says:

      It cost nothing because the event was funded by the “Pan American Health Organization.” …………………and the comparison between the two trips is not a good one………as one was totally funded by an outside organization, the other out of the Government and People’s purse………

    Where was the tender on paying for this? Surely there could have been other organizations willing to compete for the honor of paying for the trip.
