From La Patilla, this magnificent collage of Hugo and his Lybian buddy. As the saying goes: “Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres”. (Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are)
Observations focused on the problems of an underdeveloped country, Venezuela, with some serendipity about the world (orchids, techs, science, investments, politics) at large.

Venezuela might be a clear example of that.
