Tommorrow in the morning time- We get to visit the poorest neighborhood in Venezuela with a gentleman from there.
Presently- There are three young women rapping with staggering speed and annunciation over pirated beats at a stage in the street in the rain.
A few hours ago - Before Chavez spoke to raring crowds of Cubans and Venezuelans at the gigantic geodesic dome a Catholic priest told this story:
"A few minutes ago, before I came on stage, a young man asked me if I am the priest who will bless this new revolution. I told him, no, that the revolutin does not need any blessing. I told him that the revolution blesses all of us, and creates a new era of love. That is the blessing."
When I come home I am going to do some reading (or at least check wikipedia) on Latin American history, especially these topics: the history of the American cowboys that tried to take over Central America, Simon Bolivar, Fidel Castro and the history of imperialism by United States fruit corporations.
