Most of you may have heard about this before us, since we were at the Estancia. Former President of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner died this morning at age 60. His wife, Cristina is the current president. The country is in mourning; officially for 3 days. The English speaking newspaper tells much about it: http://www.buenosairesherald.com/. The people have gathered today in the big square in front of the Casa Rosada (where president lives, pink house). There will be another big commemorative gathering tomorrow at noon. We hope to be able to see some of this. He was a much loved president who helped the country through bad financial times.
