I had never seen such a huge bunch of live bamboo. This was at the foot of Avila mountain in Caracas.

A short stretch of good road, near this:

An oil refinery, one of many we passed. $1.25 USD for a full tank of gas, my friends. Like this, Chavez can do whatever he damn well pleases. If he succeeds in turning this country into another Cuba, it will be frightful. Because here, as opposed to that banana republic, they are rich. And they steal like there is no tomorrow.
