    Yes, sure. I can hear it quite clearly.

    I am still puzzled about "santria". Could she mean "antisanitaria?"

    By the way, I have realized I had uploaded a slowed-down version. Here is the regular (not slowed) recording of the same phrase.

    Ooooh thanks, Lampada, sorry for extra work: I forgot to post my version with blanks

    It is Joachin, by the way, not Vachinas

    I didn't know about Cezar Palace, no wonder I couldn't understand that piece.

    The end of this sentence still doesn't make any sense. "As well as others ___ around the world" -- what is between "others" and "around"?
