Signs of the Times

We had to go to Córdoba last week to finish up some necessary paperwork for our visas.  While driving there we passed this sign about the Falkland Islands.  This sign is what Argentina thinks about the Falkland Islands - that they're the Islas Malvinas and belong to them.  The islands are at the southern end of the country.  The president of Argentina, Cristina de Kirchner, is currently requesting David Cameron, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, to hand over the islands to Argentina.  If you're interested, you can go to Wikipedia to get all the details.

This billboard is on the outskirts of Catamarca.  Cristina is on the left and the governor is on the right.  They're both from the same political party.

This billboard is also on the route from Córdoba to Catamarca.  This is the image of the Virgin of the Valley for Catamarca.  What you're seeing behind the Virgin - the windy road - is a popular road that takes you up to see the view of the city and we've taken several missionaries up there.
