Water For San Genaro -- part 2

After gathering all of the necessary documents to present our proposal to the water utility, SEDAPAL, we held a meeting for all of the neighbors who will be able to use the new water source, to explain what we´re planning to do and to gather their signatures. All of the people who showed up signed the proposal, and Fredi will continue to collect the remaining signatures so that we can deliver it on Wednesday. Supposedly we should get a response from SEDAPAL within just a few days, telling us what the cost will be.

The municipal elections are coming up in just a couple of weeks, and the walls of most of the houses on the hills of San Genaro have been transformed into campaign billboards. Almost all of them display the name of the incumbent mayor, Miyashiro, who is probably spending city funds and using city workers to paint the ads.
