It is election season and having offered my own trivial observations on the Argentine elections, I thought I’d move on to the Chilean elections. Near our hotel in Santiago there is a traffic rotary with hundreds of identical or nearly identical signs erected. It looks like a bit like a big brother for office campaign. Even better it is not just one loco politico, there are several.

I can’t really believe that this sort of (forgive the pun) in your face advertising works, but perhaps it does.
