Pan de Azúcar

On a note published a few weeks ago by the Panrotas magazine (Pão de Açúcar é retirado de campanha mundial) we learned that the smart Swiss businessman behind the election for the New 7 wonders of nature had decided to exclude from the competition Rio de Janeiro’s Sugar Loaf mountain.

The reason for the exclusion? The campaign for the election of the Sugar Loaf had the support of private companies. But hold on a sec, it’s not that the Swiss doesn’t allow the private initiative to finance his farce. The problem is that the companies supporting the Sugar Loaf had not signed a contract with the Swiss entrepeneur. And if there is no contract and no dues are paid, there is no election.

And yet many people will still get excited about the whole election thing.
