paging banksy

One of my most favoritest things about my favoritest places is the incredible political graffitti that starts to speckle the walls after many years of chaos... (addendum: i have been chastised and called elitist for not translating these. It's nice to know people care. Translations added, thanks Uncle Pime!)

"Revolution in the plaza, at home and in bed."

"It's the Vatican's fault."

"Are we really in a democracy?"

"The pencils keep on writing..."

"Victory for the Palestinian resistence"

"Where are the Disappeared?" (This building contains military history; the question was not randomly placed!)

"Effing Peronists!"

"Revolutionizing memory, constructing the future."

"Where is he?"

"Women standing to face crises!"

Great to hear things are going well for you and Marlo. After perusing your (long!) favorite book list, I have a couple more to suggest, esp. while your in S.A.--
our book club is now reading "The River of Doubt" by Candice Millard, about T. Roosevelt's trip to the Amazon Basis after he lost the election. And if you haven't read it yet, you need to read "Through Gates of Splendor" by Elizabeth Elliot. That one is so meaty I could only digest a chapter, or part of one, & had to take a break. Well worth the trouble.
