I have received these invitations for over 25 yrs. and consider them to be high priced travel agency trips aimed at everyone who belongs to ASCE, APWA and similar organizations. I received invitations to go to China and the former USSR and was later able to go to the same cities and places (and talk to engineers and public officials) for much less. I visited Cuba for a week 3 yrs. ago on my own and saw many buildings in various states of repair for a total of about $750 including airfare from LA to Mexico City. I wonder how much this trip costs. Stan Scholl, P. E.
