The other national teams must approve the exception granted by Sepp Blatter, store but it looks like La Paz might be re-open for business.
“I had a good visit with Evo Morales – a good soccer player, I have to say – and he asked me for an exception for La Paz, and I can make that exception,” Blatter said in Guatemala City, where he is attending a session of the International Olympic Committee.
In today’s edition of El Deber, an interview with me appears. It focuses on my role as Latin America editor for Global Voices Online. The story’s author, Jose Andres Sanchez called me one afternoon to chat for about 10 minutes. The echo on the receiving end of the phone was a bit distracting and may have had something to do with the information that states that I am an ‘ecologist’. I’m pretty sure that I studied psicologia and not ecologia, but maybe my Spanish is so bad that it was easy to confuse the two. The interview also is published on Sanchez’ blog.
