Kirchner’s death

Correction from last night’s blog.  The pink house is no longer the president’s residence, it is called the “government house.”  There is a wake there today with closed casket.  1000s lined up to file past and pay their respects.  His wife, Cristina (current president) was there most of the time with their 2 children (teenage or older).  The funeral will actually be down in Patagonia where they are from, and where he died, yesterday, waiting for the census takers.  Again, today some businesses and schools are closed in his honor.  It sounds like he is one of those politicians that you either love or hate (well, most are like that, aren’t they?).  We are watching it unfold on live TV, in Spanish of course.  Otherwise not much else happening today.
