Alan Garcia, cumple tu promesa!
I woke up because of loud drum and horn sounds and shouting outside and curious to see what was going on I had a look outside and experienced a Peruvian demonstration. I didn´t quite get what it was all about but obviously the people were unhappy with the President Alan Garcia who promised a lot of things before the election but didn´t keep his promises. So the people were all shouting "Alan Garcia, cumple to promesa!!!" (keep your promise)
Even though one could hear the anger in people´s voices when shouting their slogans, the whole demonstration was very peaceful and the police seemed rather bored with the whole uproar. It seems that demonstrations are rather normal here and that every President is not really liked. I asked some Peruvians what they think of their President and government and most of them said it doesn´t really matter who is President because all of them suck. Well, I thought, isn´t that the same with every government in every country? :-)
