Default Positive Developements For Democracy In Venezuela

Here's another good sign from Presidente Chavez that Freedom and Democracy are at the heart of his benevolent plan for the proletariat.

If you can't beat them, join them. Then beat them. Barring that, arrange to have them beaten.

Hey guys! I am here in Ecuador and have been doing some volunteer work in the Amazon with a local tribe. Im also using this experience to write about volunteer eco-tourism for my school and it consitutes as an internship. however, after traveling around for a bit, I have become somewhat jaded. You meet so many people that are amazing and trying to help so many of the less fortunate. Then they steal your things, continuously try to rip you off, direct you the wrong way so you have to pay for means back to the starting point, and generally look at you differently. At first you can have the mentale that they are needy and possibly they stole all your belongings because they need them. Then towards the end of the trip when they bombard you trying to sell your stuff back to you for an outrageous price, it just leaves you....jaded. Tehy have much work to do and hopefully here in Ecuador they will all eventually have running water and suitable housing. When the earthquake hit Peru, they had us all evacuate the ocean front towns and head for the hills in case of a tsunami. However, so many people did not have televisions and there was not a way to inform people as a whole. In fact, when we found out about the possible tsunami, it had already been two hours passed the earthquake. We would have already experienced it. So unfortunate. Ill be back in Texas soon.

I plan on doing some "volunteer" work in the Mid east someday.
