Miss Universe Blogs About Visiting Guantanamo Bay: "Soooo Beautiful!"

The XX Factor's Hanna Rosin has been reading the blog of Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza. And, as it turns out, Miss Universe is sort of a nimrod! But there are blissful benefits. For example, you can travel to the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and be able to describe the experience as if you were reading copy from a Sandals resorts advertisement:

We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting.
We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.

The water in Guantanamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me off Guantanamo Bay :)

Oh, there's more. Much more. Every sentence is a delightful little sip of candy-flavored brain poison. I just wonder if, you know...the Universe might deserve a better representative than someone who dots her torture center travelogue with emoticons. But who knows? Maybe it doesn't!
