Dry End to a Wet Week

Demonstrating either how seriously Colombians take voting- or how scared they are of it - the country banned alchohol sales beginning six p.m. Friday, 48 hours before the vote. Hmmm. Are they afraid that people will become too crazily excited over democracy?

Ironically, this last week was one of the wettest in history, in terms of rain.

Here's a billboard in which Santos plays the Chavez card - without naming the leftist Venezuelan leader. Chavez has warned several times about the consequences of Colombia electing Santos, who pissed off Chavez by bombing a FARC guerrilla camp located in Ecuador.

On Monday, the second round, between Santos and Mockus, will officially begin.
