Howard Berg! What is his story? How did he arrive to be the faster reader in the world?  A Guinness World Record Holder? Something in him must be unique… Did he have a mission? Or did life’s circumstances land him here? How does it feel to do what he does? In order to understand how someone can help and contribute to society in such an immeasurable way, you must hear him speak.
It’s a beautiful day to enjoy fellowship, and an eye-opening presentation. In the pre-meeting chat, Marc Mazorow exclaimed that French Polynesia vacation was the one and only trip he wished he didn’t have to come home. That made us all excited on anticipating today’s topic “Journey to French Polynesia by Peter Makler”
At 12:01, president Queen Eileen called everyone to attention. Judge Greg provided a soul-searching Inspiration, followed by our newest member Carmenza and wonderful flute playing of patriotic song by Dr. Carol.

Finally, the long-waited event of the day. Rick Mendoza presented speaker Peter Makler, a long time Rotarian for San Pedro club, then Reno club and back to San Pedro. Peter is Architect by profession with Civil Engineering experience. Peter loves traveling and scuba diving, he really enjoys trips without itinerary, adventurous!
Peter has enjoyed working with kids through Rotary club, and he really love meeting high quality Rotarians in his traveling. He has many other slide shows of different traveling, like trip to Belize, that he is happy to share with our club if we invite him back. 
Peter started by saying French Polynesia enjoys weather not unlike Hawaii, lots of hiking trails and beautiful scenery. The diving boat they aboard has staterooms for every diver, fully equipped with diving equipment and great staff services for 7 days of diving expedition. He presented so many beautiful pictures, this reporter just have to share them with you:
    
At Q&A, Peter highly recommend us to get certified for diving before going to French Polynesia, since it’s French, it’s very expensive there, their trip of one week, costed him and his wife about $20K, there are other diving trips that costed half. He always bring his own equipments except weight and tank (you don’t want to take those on board of any plane).
It’s a wonderful day for a wonderful presentation. Thank you Peter. Hope to see you all on the club dine-out on 8/27
