Wow! No kidding?!

As I am sure you are all aware, Peruvian presidential elections are held every five years, including this coming April.  Occasionally promises are made during such contests that might seem a little farfetched, or that may be thought to perhaps even represent pandering to local populations.
For instance, let's consider the following, seen freshly painted on a wall next to the airport for the Mantaro Valley in which we live.  This airport is located in the metropolis of Jauja, home to about 16,000 souls.
Wow!  So, Alan Garcia, who some say may have been the most corrupt of former presidents of Peru is not only promising a new hospital, but even the internationalization of the Jauja airport!
To do so, I'm sure he'll begin with the terminal, enlarging it a bit and maybe putting in a restaurant for all those folks coming in from all those countries.
It will also be cool to finally have runway lights.  And maybe even navigational aids. Electrical stuff!
However, to accommodate international planes, which will be a bit bigger than what flies in now,
they're going to have to extend the runway just a teensy bit.  Oh, snap!  They can't. There's those darn mountains,
which may be an impediment themselves to safe navigation for all those large airliners that will coming from far distant places.
However, if he's elected, he will have to keep all those promises.  Right?  Right?!!  I mean if you say you're going to do it, that means you'll do it, no?
Good.  Now we've got that settled.
We hope that your airports have great plans also.

Promises kept or not, at least your campaigning will be finished in April. We will still have 6 months of craziness to go. Hey! I just Trumped your blog!
