Another response from Venezuela
Marcela and her husband Roberto were two of our guides on the Global Exchange tour I was on in Venezuela in April. Marcela responded to my e-mail from yesterday:
Thank you very much for your wishes, Bob, and thanks for all the articles and letters you have written about Venezuelan situation.
We have lots of rumours about violence kicking off before the end of the referendum process but I still have hopes that will not happen. Chávez has called to get up at 3 o'clock on Sunday morning. Since most people are very worried for violence and excited about the process, they would probably stay in the streets from today on, as we have seen in the past during difficult situations. Our eyes are wide open.
Hasta la victoria siempre.
