Behind the crest of the news
I have been remise in covering the Peruvian elections. Good things (tons of paying work) and bad things (a crashed hard disk) have stolen my free time and energy for thinking about the complexities in Peru. In case you don't already know, the best blog for following political events is Peru Election 2006 hosted by the University of British Columbia. It's a team effort, with lost of comments and feedback, content in English and Spanish.
To add insult, I absentmindedly posted this item in my other blog, Prana Journal, last week. This week I need to get back in the groove, having at least caught up with the essentials of daily life.
We provided full coverage, minute by minute of the elections in Peru. We'll also do that for the second round that's coming up in a couple weeks. The information displayed in the coverage is NOT biased in any way, and has taken several sources to confirm the news displayed. Information is in spanish though:
