Evo’s ascension

Yesterday Evo Morales was sworn in as Bolivia’s 66th president. We saw much of the ceremony on the TV of Alcides and Noemi from their house in Plan Tres Mil, a city close to Santa Cruz. Wow, Bolivian politicians can talk. The new vice president spoke forever, followed by Evo, then other dignitaries. Then they all spoke AGAIN. It dragged on for hours and hours, all covered by live TV.

In any case, this is a momentous event in Bolivia’s political history. I am bringing back some newspapers documenting the occasion.

Meanwhile, all the internet cafes we’ve used so far have AWFUL keyboards. I have to reype words 5 or 6 times because the keys don’t work. I hope we find a good one soon.

Jadzia is doing well… but everyone we meet says she should be wearing socks or pants and that she must be cold. In fact, she gets hot and her face flushes sometimes! 🙂
