"La Tierra Vista Desde El Cielo" Sponsor's Cocktail

Last Saturday night, April 21st, we concluded the opening "La Tierra Vista Desde El Cielo" festivities by attending a cocktail party held in honor of Yann Arthus Bertrand.

There was plenty of champagne, wine, French ham, pate, jumbo shrimp, and other great food to go around. Later during the evening they were more speeches, and again Yann reiterated that he had never been received so warmly as he had been here in Puerto Rico. In addition, the Honorable William Miranda Marin, Mayor of Caguas gave a very stirring speech to Yann. He expressed his profound respect and admiration. Not only was Yann visibly moved by the Mayor's speech but so was the Mayor as well.

Another highlight of the evening was Yann receiving a medal for his work from UNESCO, to which Yann joked "I've been working with UNESCO for fifteen years and this is the first time I've even met someone from there."
