Socialist Big Turkeys

Just prior to Christmas of 2011 I spotted the Bolivian government's contribution to ending hunger in the nation, providing the people with giant turkeys just in time for the season's big yummy. As usual, the socialists got the whole idea wrong. Yes, these are big turkeys, but if you look closely you will see that there is almost no meat on them. And cooking the bones to make soup? Well, I don't think so. Christmas was good for me in La Paz, dinner with a few people I had met and was on happy terms with. A short friendship over the holidays; but such is the nature of travel, this short life being broken into tiny pieces strung out over a brief span. But where friends are, for however short that time to like them, life is good. It's even better when one has ones own money and need not rely on government for dinner.

Someone suggests they are vultures. I certainly agree.
