Some news from the morning paper (not that I read it myself – my Spanish skills are far below this level):
  1. A 33 years old Italian chef from Toronto met a lady from Guayaquil, Ecuador, over the internet. He came over this week to visit her. He was killed by the lady's former boyfriend a few hours after his arrival to Guayaquil.
  2. An overloaded bus with over 60 passengers fell down the cliff last week. 36 people dead. The latest news is that the driver NEVER HAD A DRIVER'S LICENCE (!!!!)
  3. A 24 year old woman found dead in her home. Shot in the head.

I am not sure if all the above is “newsworthy” but I do have the impression that someone's life doesn't count for much here. Maybe it it the same in “my world” and I just don't pay much attention to that. I never read the accidents/crime reports in Vancouver.

Yes, the streets ARE being cleaned here.  The writing on the garbage cart says that this is a municipal service.  By the way the city mayor, Carlos Carriel, didn't pass the opportunity to put also his own name on the cart. In fact the city's website is nothing but one big advertising campaign for Mr.  Carlos Carriel.  If you've got some power then you make sure to use it well to get more power...

 Sorry, Faizuly Botere, but I visited the website http://www.municipioventanas.org and it is obvious to me that Carlos Carriel is an ASS. Andy if you disagree with that then you are an ass yourself. But I think that you are either Carols himself posting under a fake name or you are paid by him. Otherwise you wouldn't write that nonsense. By thy way, if you post anything please do it in English,

@ Ted 1. Mysle ze hiszpanski jest wcale nie gorszy od Mandarin albo English, w najgorszym wypadku ktos nie zrozumie => ma pecha. Ja niestety tez nie zrozumialem => mam pecha. 2. Nie wydaje mi sie, aby obrzucanie kogokolwiek epitetami bylo zbyt przekonywujace.

Hi there from sunny Brunswick Heads, Australia

Have had a successful change to Alaska in '09 through your site and have another arranged for Nova Scotia later this year. Plus I am hosting someone from Reunion Island in April - all through your free site. Excellent!
