L is for…

Laugh I nearly shat. I see they have given that Peruvian president a second chance after fucking things up almost completely the first time. This prolonged period of learning must be something we look to encourage in our leaders.. Hoorah to Peru for making a proud stand and making a moral stand for giving leaders a second chance..

Ignoring his wife, dude ushers me in and plonks me on a stool next to his wife who has alerted herself to the presence of a visitor and has begun babbling, fussing and pointing round and about. Hut The…

Village Puello – One eye

Village Puello – One eye

Welsh wall

Welsh wall

Not appreciating the precariousness of its construction, I turn to view a passing truck unbalancing one of the corner stones and sending the wall crashing into the road along with my humble self much…
