• An exotic group of gringos

*Sort of famous. OK, not really.

As I mentioned earlier this week, I moved recently, a process that included going through a bunch of stuff I haven’t looked at in years. Tucked away in the back of an old folder was an article from a Chilean newspaper dated November 14, 2004, which told the story of how a couple friends and I watched the presidential debates while living in Santiago. The obvious question, of course, is why anyone would write about this, and I honestly don’t know the answer. Slow news day, I guess. And Las Ultimas Noticias, the paper that published it, is more of a tabloid than anything else. For example, one of the stories on their website this week was about Bruno the chihuahua, who plays Benjamin (coincidentally, also a chihuahua) on a new soap opera.
