The Third Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean

This week's big Latin American news is that the King of Spain told Chavez to shut up during the XVII Latin American Summit in Chile.

Mind you, the King not only told him to shut up, King Juan Carlos told him in the most in-you-face disrespectful way. Thank you, your majesty.

Bloggers from all over are posting about it:

Thanks for the link, Fausta!
We will see what's the result of all of this..., though I am not very optimistic, considering our Government's buenismo... :(
