What you've been doing

Today's one of those days where they warned me to go out into the streets at all: Too dangerous is what they said. "It's too dangerous. There will be riots in the street."

It's Indepedence Day. And people go out into the streets to protest against their politicians whom they blame for the economic crisis in their once so rich and proud country. "On Independence Day we remember the days when we were independent", said a friend to me this morning. And that's what I like about the people here in Buenos Aires. They do not lose their sense of humor.

And the demonstration was really peaceful. People with drums, chanting, shouting against their leaders. But all in style.
