Reading Gus's recent roundup of happening's in China and "south of our border" I suddenly remembered that I've wanted to add a Venezuelan blog to my blogroll for some time, but kept forgetting to do it until now. The gentleman who writes this blog, writes from an anti-Chavez point of view. He certainly sheds light on how corrupt the government has become there.
As an aside, (for men only---or not!) apart from his many cogent observations on life there, when you visit his blog, be sure to scroll down the left column until you see his "My Sections" and look for Venezuelan Beauties, where you'll find photos of extraordinary Venezuelan women, mostly involved in either protesting Chavez or celebrating a Venezuelan tribute of some kind.
