Photo of the Month - October 1997
From Mexico we have a pair of photos that perfectly illustrate that Scouting the world over is about people having fun together. The Spanish translation here was done by a colleague of mine, Jose, from Spain. Unfortunately Mexican Spanish isn't quite the same as Spanish Spanish (if you see what I mean) so the translation isn't perfect. It does mean though that the contributor of this month's photo was able to describe the pictures in his own language.
Luis Rebollar, Sub-leader of Wolf Cub Pack 5 "Tenochcas" in the district of Iztacalco, Mexico City has sent in these photos. They were taken on 6th September during Scout Week 1997.
Hello Mark ("That was easy" says my translator Jose)

My name is Luis Rebollar, I sent you the photos with an indian atmosphere, the Scouter is my Group Chief and at that moment goes to the Warriors dance. He was the 'Great Chief Stopped Feather'. His name is Miguel Angel and he's an excellent Scout and friend.
