A regular reader has recently embarqued on a 3 month tour of South America, taking in all the continent has to offer. Whilst her main mission (I'm told) is to improve her Spanish and complete some voluntary work, it's clear that she's also doing a little 2012OC scouting work.

She writes, "The national sports here are, and you have a choice of two, Bull Fighting and Cock Fighting", which is good to know. Bull fighting is not the kind of sport that one would like to practice at - I mean, surely you wouldn't want to face an angry bull when not fully competant. And as for the cocks - I guess they look after themselves.

Ambassador McIlroy is also doing her best to tick of various South American countries on the map for me too, thus ensuring that I get complete worldwide coverage for the story. Keep up the good work Ambassador!

  • Any chance of Ambassador McIlroy facilitating a coup in one of the less stable South American States, nominating herself as Sports Minister, etc, etc?

  • She'll have to learn the spanish for "Right... now, listen up. I'm from Northern Ireland and I'd like to take over your government for entirely peaceful and sporting reasons. Thanks for your help"*

    * OK... ahora, escucha para arriba. Soy de Irlanda del Norte y quisiera asumir el control su gobierno por razones enteramente pacíficas y que se divierten. Gracias por ayuda

  • That should really be in south american phrase books, just in case.

  • it is obscure, but you can never be too prepared can you?
