Iguaçu Wall of Shame

Berlin has had a wall. President Bush wants to build his own and Israel already has one to separate them from the Palestines. We in Foz do Iguaçu also have one. It is my local Berlin Wall. It is my local Wall of Shame. It is seen somewhere in between the caterpillar digging the foundation for the new Immigration-Customs- Border Control Center and the building skyline in the background. The wall was built in order to prevent people from running with their "sacolas" (bags), boxes of fake cigarrettes and so on. I hope that with the new world-classe structure, the wall may go down and the river may appear, may zoom back into view again.
