Americana

Two quick things:

1) I just saw another Mike Cameron San Diego Padres jersey, but this time in Encarnacion, a six hour drive away from Asuncion.  I’m guessing  Mike Cameron Night, whenever it happened, was mid-summer game, against the Reds, with Woody Williams on the mound.  Maybe 20,000 people at Petco.  Gotta send the rest of the t-shirts somewhere, right?  Why not Paraguay?  I only wish this delivery of t-shirts had been accompanied with a little dose of interest in the sport of baseball.  Maybe then the version of ESPN Deportes that they run here would show a few games from the World Baseball Classic.  Instead, when I could be watching Cuba vs. Japan, I have to watch women’s tennis.

2) Rose has a great post on her blog about the new American foods aisle we found at a local grocery store.
