  1. Nice one, Silvia! I’ve been tweeting newspaper articles from our daily broadsheet, The Age, in Melbourne Australia. They seem well written, though it’s naturally hard to see what’s really happening on the ground. It sure looks like a lot of people are being majorly disrespected over there. Thank you for your informative post, and for visiting my blog. Best regards, P. 🙂
