Quick Tidbit about Sao Tome


Our friends over at São Tomé e Príncipe
(previously mentioned in an earlier post)
got some press today over at The Fiver,
The Guardian Unlimited's 'tea-time take on the world of football.'

I'm not sure if this is good or bad news ... you take a look.

'Guam, Aruba, Sao Tomé and Montserrat. Types of cheese? Swahili swear words? New Bolton signings? No, they're four of the nine countries currently doing something cheek-wrenchingly rude to the Fifa world ranking: sharing its bottom. If that sounds anatomically improbable, then the next bit is freaking incredible: none of the other countries on the list are called Northern Ireland ...'

Hmm, I suppose any press is good press, huh?

I don't know about you, but take a look at these pictures. Last place in the world or not, it's gorgeous there ...

What a heartbreaking reality... to have to learn to fear an agent telling you that your worth something and that dreams can come true...then being improsined and your family being taken advantage of. That children should have to be afraid of something that should represent nothing other than hope, wow! What a world!
