A signature in Colombia

The big show in LatAm today is in Cartagena Colombia, where President Juan Manuel Santos and FARC-EP leader Rodrigo Londoño will do the official signature thing and then shake hands on Colombian territory for the first time, all done in front of a wide array of local and foriegn dignitaries (plenty of South American presidents making the trip, along with Raul Castro of Cuba and John Kerry repping for the USA).

And the big big glittering show is all to make sure that the really big day, this Sunday October 2nd, goes off without a hitch and Colombia's population officially vote the peace deal into effect via the national referendum.

You don't need a link to any of this, your screens will be saturated by the story come the afternoon.
