"Envia tu opinion: A quien crees que pertenece el Rio San Juan, si a Costa Rica o Nicaragua, a www.nicasmalparidos.com y queda participando en la rifa de 2 rotweiller y 2 nicas para a jugar. Recuerde entre mas correos envies, mas oportunidades tendras de ganar!"
Translates to: "Send your opinion: Who do you think owns the Rio San Juan - if it's Costa Rica or Nicaragua - to www.nicabastards.com and participate (sic) in the raffle of 2 Rotweiller's and 2 Nicas for them to play with. Remember, the more mail you send, the better your chances of winning!"
WOW! I had no idea Tico's even knew what sarcasm was! ¡Pura vida!
The mention of the Rotweiller's vs. Nicas, however, is a tasteless reference to a recent news story about an attack by a couple of Rotweiller's on a couple of Nicaraguan's. A bit brutal for me.
Here's some Costa Rican government propaganda that does a pretty decent job at explaining the incursion and why it wants Nicaragua to pull back.
I find it interesting, however, that Isla Calero is described as a valuable, protected natural area having a rich diversity of unique flora and fauna. Before the Nicaraguan incursion, it was worthless piece of shit in the middle of fucking nowhere leased by the government to a cattle rancher.
I found this image particularly humorous. It depicts a map of Central America with the country of Nicaragua conspicuously missing. It has been replaced by the "Sea of Happiness".
In the end, it was really Google Maps who caused all of this (click here). It certainly would not have happened with Bing!
Stay tuned for what tomorrow brings!! Can't wait!!
