The authorities, elected representatives, and population of the Commune of Oued-Korelch (near Algiers), very moved by the death of Pope John Paul II, offer their most sorrowful condolences to the deceased’s wife and children.

And they make fun of American tourists’ lack of knowledge of foreign ways…
