I have been reluctant to comment on the events of 11 February. I wasn’t there and I thought that eventually some facts must come out. There have all sorts of speculation on motives, the actual movements of the players and the odd bits of information here and there but there are still information gaps to be filled.
Key phrases in all this are : Who did it ? Why did they do it ? What did they hope to achieve ? Why was Alfredo in a fresh and very expensive army uniform ? Why the money in his pockets ? What role did Angelita play ? Were mind altering substances involved ? Was it a carefully planned event or a complete balls-up ?
One day we may know. Meanwhile, night curfew continues from 11pm to 5am until 22 April. Afternoon rains have been fairly consistent over the last week thus upsetting my exercise schedule. Beer prices over the bar have increased in most places to US$3 per tinny except for … where I will be this evening. Sadly, the comic opera I once proposed for Major Alfredo may have to be re-written into tragedy (the operatic form I mean).
