projects find new life. The upcoming world cup games (upcoming being
in a couple of years, which are more like weeks when you factor in how
quickly things move here and how much there still is to be done) have
added increasing pressure, enough even to get an actual train put on
the Metro track, though the track remains unfinished and the train
does no actually move. Signs begin to go up near elections - operation
"filling in holes" or operation "dredge the river" (both also
sometimes called operation "elect me".) It's a sign that shows you
that not all your tax dollars are going into the politicians' pockets
(some of them go to pay for large signs too).
This sign showed up near my house about a week ago. It ruffly
translates into "various interventions-your government working for
you." About a week later, another sign went up facing the other way
saying the same thing. What these "interventions" might be remains
vague. Perhaps the sign is the intervention in and of itself.
