If Kenya celebrated the victory of Barak Obama, Bulgaria had every right to celebrate 'Dilma' of Bulgarian descent. But the expectations over the Brazilian president's visit here were way too high.
The huge spick-and-span windows of Bulgaria's first gymnasium reflect the rays of the scorching sun as hundreds line up for a chance to take a glimpse of a woman who has made headlines all over the world. Once she appears, the silent crowd breaks into cheers and applause....
One has to look closely at the multi-national company involvment in Brazil, for example, General Motors, Ford, Toyoto, Nissan, Honda, Volkswagen, Scania, Esso-Mobil, Texaco, Shell, Food Sectors like Cargill and Bunge.
