We returned from our weekly shopping trip to Salinas, and were greeted by Agripina and Isidro, saying that we made all the news feeds. They said that we were on all the TV news stations, and in all the papers that they could see...Yikes!
We thought that we were fairly unobrusive as we watched the protest, however, we must have made good copy as the only Gringos who stuck around for the whole shebang.
This front page photo proclaims that "the areas in the North are dying of thirst!"
Same photo on the inside front page with more story...
Just in case you can't recognize the only Gringos in the shot...here we are...
There was a steady stream of water trucks heading north on Ruta Del Sol today. And...yesterday...two trucks loaded with "hospital equipment" (in English), arrived for our beleaguered hospital..
So...who's to say, that a small non-violent protest does no good???
