Obama in Antigua Guatemala

Obama in Antigua Guatemala

Maybe we will get it right this election. —The Brunscheon, Oregon

We hope so. —The rest of the world

Well, as some of you may already know, my birthday falls on September 11th and like everyone else, I like to receive presents. I was very lucky to have received sweet and nice wishes from many of you. I was also fortunate to have spoken with my mom and sisters who lived in the United States. My beautiful, rich and famous sisters decided to give me an iPod Touch as present for my birthday (Thanks). Besides an ordinary day at work, the day progressed quite peacefully, which is to me, one of the best gifts from life. My wife and I had a lovely dinner and talk.

On my way to the office, I stopped to pick the mail at our post office box and there I received the very first present of the day. My very dear friends from Oregon sent me a hand-written post card and an Obama button. Interesting enough the card was sent on August 11th, but it was not in the p.o. box last time I checked on the last days of August.

I am going to take this opportunity to let you know why La Antigua Guatemala is Barack Obama‘s territory. Regardless of their background or economic status, just about every expat I have spoken to, tells me that for the first time ever, they will make every effort to either go to the U.S. to cast their Obama vote for a positive change for the United States and for the rest of the world. Those who can not travel to U.S. for election time will be able to cast their vote at Doña Luisa Xicotencatl (I believe so).

That’s right, synchronicity is real and not just a The Police song. See, yesterday I posted a photo of Guatemalan Independence Day Bunting I photographed at the doorway entrance of Doña Luisa Xicotencatl. I know there’s a campaign in La Antigua Guatemala to provide voting information for U.S. citizens living in Guatemala through the www.VoteFromAbroad.org web site.

I do hope you guys living in the U.S. and those living abroad get it right this coming election; that would be the best birthday present ever! ;-)
