    Ah, the Plaza del Mayo… I’ve just finished reading The Shock Doctrine and all the naughty naughty things Pinochet and the CIA got up to. Did you get goose-bumpy being there? Mothers of the disappeared and all that? Martin Place aint got quite the history and gravitas of the Plaza del Mayo.

    indeed … the Mothers actually came to some agreement a couple of years ago, apparently, so don’t hold the vigil anymore. But yeah certainly a passionate nation in many ways, there’s graffiti all around dedicated to Cristina Kirchner (the “new Evita” who’s just taken over from hubby as president …)

    Actually you just reminded me I should have been kicking Ford cars the whole time for their support of the shenanigans …
