I don’t know how I do it, but I have a knack for happening on to marches or news events in Cali. A couple of days ago, I was checking on the progress on the murals at the stadium when a car escorted by motorcycle cops with big guns stopped. I watched and out stepped the mayor of Cali, Rodrigo Guerrero, and others. In this photo, he (in white shirt at left) and some school kids that happened to be on a field trip to see the murals and a few others applaud the mural artist on his Falcao mural. The mural painter is from Portugal and goes by the name of Mr. Dheo. This is one of the most popular of the murals at the stadium and people are always stopping to get their photo taken with Falcao. While taking photos of this event, I noticed an El País photographer there along with several other media personal. The next day, the El País had a front page photo and story from this news event.
