A great day for taking pictures!

I usually take lots of pictures but are only happy with a few. Either I am just giddy with the rally or tody was specially good for taking pictures. Above left: On the left the united country I want, on the right the division. Above Right: This lady was more than happy and willing to have her picture taken with all the SI stikers on her shirt and face. More pictures as I have time to post in the Pictures section.

Closing oppositon rally, campaigning is over at midnight

August 12, 2004

The opposition closed its campaign today with six marches and a rally ending in the same point. It was very impressive. The mood was festive, happy, joyful and enthusiastic. I don’t want to get into an argument about size or if it matters, but it was HUGE. At somepoint I just moved according to the flow of people around me without being able to determine where I was going. It was hot, fun and I think it made everyone happy. Usually, it is hard for me to be within a march or rally and be able to take pictures even attempting to show how big it was. But here are four pictures, three of which attempt to do that, I actually had to work for these. I am tired, but in about an hour of two I will put up a selection of people’s pictures. I took lots, stay tuned! Great rally. The die is cast!



Top left: This is from a midpoint between the stage and the back of the march looking towards the back as far as I could see. Right: same shot but looking left, the stage is out of the picture further to the left.



Bottom Left: This is taken from the back of the stage, it was crowded there too. Bottom right: Personalities to the left of the stage. The sign says: Barinas (Chavez’ state) asks Venezuela for forgiveness.
