...en esta etapa cuando comienza a cambiar nuestra percepción del entorno y la percepción de los otros hacia nosotros he podido aprender que lo frívolo puede ser importante o al menos es una parte de la vida no tan despreciable como cuando me tomaba las cosas más en serio; así les presento este blog tan intrascendente como otro cualquiera.

About Mugabe from "The Guardian" (British Newspaper)

Africa’s leaders have appointed Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe [president of Zimbabwe]* to the largely ceremonial role of chairman of the 54-state African Union.
Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980, is still respected by many for leading his country to independence from Britain. But critics believe the ‘president for life’ is out of touch with the people the African Union claims to represent.
Age is not a factor is the selection process for position for chairman of the Africa Union, but Africa is the world’s youngest continent, and at 90 years-old, Mugabe is among the estimated 5% of Africans who manage to live past their sixtieth birthday. In 2012, 85% of the population was under the age of 45, and life expectancy across the continent was 58 years.
