Last week I had the pleasure of interpreting for Professor Jouko Tuomisto and his wife, Dr. Leena Tuomisto. They had been invited to Uruguay to provide valuable information regarding pulp industries and health.
We had meetings with national health officials in Montevideo and later traveled to Río Negro to speak with high ranking local government officials, local health organizations, political figures and private companies.
Though I had previously visited Río Negro many times, for both work and recreation, this was my first time in Paysandú. I feel very fortunate that my work takes me to new and interesting places.
