Retired circus elephants get new home with plenty of room to roam
After years of entertaining fans under the big top -- and a few years in retirement -- in Central Florida, a herd of former circus elephants is settling into their new home at a wildlife refuge.
That's when music took a dive.... Que Dios Descansen Ah Las Personas affectados, Mis Resos Hoy Seran Paras Todos En MEXICO... Like I said less illegal coming in. In weak democracies, like the mexican, in 2014, when this train was built companies set forth the rules in public infrastructure design based on their benefit, not on a win-win basis, aiming at solving needs of the masses. Sadly this was common in previous administrations.
Since 2000 year, the local government reduced the budget for the subway, today is president; afterwards m_ebrard was major and built this facility, he has to run away from the country due to a several issues with this new subway... today is Exterior Minister Claudiashein ... que tragedia y que vergüenza... este metro es criminal ...

I see Mexico's right-wing government is working out well. 20 FestivalChin
