Today the temporada (holiday season for 3 months) has started. The bai packed with holidaymakers of mostly the poorer people and those well off who stay in the big hotels like the Hilton. But today a little girl of 8 drowned and was put into a police (serenazgo) car unconscious to be driven to a medical post. Where was the ambulance? This happened in fury and frenzy. Where were the coastal guards I have seen off season, idling around and jetskiing when nothing to do? Chaco is understaffed for many things. They still have no proper sewage system, but the investments of corporations go in only that far. The mayor is corrupt and people live poorly, by the beach hoping to get some crumbs of the tourist table.
