    Another display of Kristina's bad taste and determination to display the K legacy in a positive light.
    What's next, a bronze statue of them both?

    I hope the glass in the frames is shatterproof.

    My Uruguayan friends are puzzled. I see it as quite fitting that such an exhibition should grace what is without doubt the ugliest public building in this whole country.

    Must be about as popular as a pictures exhibition of Adolf Hitler in Tel Aviv! Are you in a free country, Uruguayans? Then you can go along and throw things. Tomatos, rotten fruit, eggs, Molotov cocktails!

    It is puzzling what constitutes greatness down there, what did he do exactly?

    Hmm... think I'll give the photo show a miss.

    Uruguayan Defense Minister described Argentine founding father Domingo Faustino Sarmiento as “a son of a bitch”. He later apologised for his bad language, said that it wasn't Sarmiento's mother's fault, and amended the description to “putrid soul”. Speculated that Sarmiento's soul must be in purgatory.

    Disappointingly, the Minister made no mention of Juan Domingo Perón or Nestor Kirchner.
