Love and Interest

Two unlikely weddings are hitting the headlines in Peru.

The first one involves Ultra-Conservative Lourdes Flores Nano. Regional media uncovered a peculiar stunt staged by the Peruvian presidential candidate. Aparently she planned to announce her wedding but to conceal the pretender's name. Then she would be "forced" to confess that the lucky one is no other than her country, Peru.

The stunt is a last resort to regain her lead just before election day. Thank God the stunt is a public affair and she will spare herself the embarrassment of a move that would look both tacky and desperate.

The second wedding is full of drama. Peru’s former President Alberto Fujimori just married Satomi Kataoka, his Japanese girlfriend. He signed the wedding papers from the Chilean cell where he awaits his extradition case verdict.

Mr. Fujimori faces corruption and human right violation charges in his native Peru. In a statement he referred to his wedding day “the happiest day of his life”.

Though the end of the Bolivia blog says, "Happy April Fool's Day..." Thankfully.

Thank you Greg!
Serves me right.

For those who are reading this for the first time: I wrongly reproduced an April Fool's Day news from a blog saying that Evo Morales was marrying an American citizen.
