Mexico, Vietnam, Peru, and Margarita Island Host Esri T-Shirts!

Patti Bailey and John Schaeffer of Juniper GIS Services in Bend, Oregon, welcomed the millennium in Esri T-shirts while in the small Mayan Village of Tabi, Quintana Roo, Mexico. As part of the group Intercambio Cultural Maya, they spent a week living with a Mayan family, helping to build the medical clinic seen in the background.

David HansonDavid Hanson, GIS analyst for SureWest Communications, Roseville, California, is clearly enjoying a voyage up the Amazon River in Peru wearing the Esri T-shirt he won at the GITA Conference at Lake Tahoe in June 2001. He says, "Some 30 years ago when I attended a tropical biogeography class at Oregon State University, I dreamed of visiting the Amazon. It was a great thrill visiting one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth. The complex rainforest vegetation, together with the vast waterways, birds, monkeys, and other wildlife, made my visit to the Amazon an unforgettable experience!"
