(Spanish) Okay, so the most important roll that Peru Shimpo plays. I think it’s to keep people informed about everything that goes on throughout the Peruvian-Japanese community. That’s, I believe, the main reason that someone reads Peru Shimpo. Because according to a survey we did last year asking readers, “Why do you read Peru Shimpo?”, the main reason, they say, is, “because I want to find out about what’s going on in the Japanese community.” It’s the biggest, most important reason. After that comes, you know, ” Oh, to read the obituaries,” that sort of thing. But most of all it’s about what’s happening within the community.
