They were blessed beyond measure to be so well taken care of by both the Sister Cities Committee of Santa Barbara and of Puerto Vallarta. They were able to attend the opening of a medical clinic sponsored by the SB Committee, a pilgrimage to the cathedral, experience folkloric dancing, visit the jungle, and see what it is like to be a squash player in Puerto Vallarta (along with so much more!). They feel forever changed to have witnessed a beautiful partnership of two cities in two different countries.
They say thank you from the bottom of their hearts to Sister Cities for sponsoring them to be a part of such a beautiful friendship between these two cities in different countries and they hope to continue the friendships with the squash students they met in Puerto Vallarta. These two Committees demonstrate that it does not matter the distance, the language, the race/ethnicity, nor anything else---real, meaningful friendships have no bounds.
