Saint Patrick, protests, tourism and more protests


I don’t really drink (except for milk, juice and tea!!!), but I hope everyone had a good St. Patrick’s day!!!  (MSN doesn’t have any 3-leaf clover, so…that’s my brazilian version of it) — I heard the Irish government wants to control/inhibit the amount of alcohol people drink this day…good luck with that!!!  (the clover brings good luck, right?)
 
*****************************************
 
I’ve also heard that there were many protests today in the US and other countries (Greece, Turkey, Spain…) against the war on Iraq. My comment on that is: well done!!! How long would it take for people to finally speak up against that and take some action??? All and every war is dumb and useless, but some are more than others… Michael Moore is a controversial and sensationalist guy, but his Fahrenheit movie was sooo right in many aspects…

Sorry this blog spent so long abandoned (again!), but besides losing my computer’s hard-drive, my friend Miriam from Argentina came to Brazil, so we did a lot of sightseeing, picture-taking (it’ll take a while before I post the pics though, sorry!), shopping and walking around…we even went to the beach and jumped waves
 
*****************************************
 
There was also a protest at Copacabana beach (not the same Copacabana in the "Her name was Lola/She was a showgirl" song, nope!) in Rio de Janeiro: 700 crosses were put on the sand to represent the 700 victims of violence in the city between January 1st and March 15th 2007. That’s quite a lot of deaths, isn’t it…imagine if São Paulo were part of the statistics too, geez!!!!!!!!! Brazil, unlike most countries, doesn’t need any foreign troops to kill its people…all it takes is governmental corruption/incompetence to generate the extreme poverty and lack of equality to kill us all…more than the war in Iraq, much more.
