A shred of hope for Venezuela

There’s been an announcement today that talks between the Venezuelan government and opposition are planned. Apparently they’ll be facilitated by representatives from the Vatican. The opposition is insisting that they be broadcast on TV and radio.

That might mean the politicians are more accountable for any commitments they make. Or it might just provide an opportunity for grandstanding. Either way we’re not holding our breath.

Now that we’re on the road we meet more travelers. Most are surprised we went to Venezuela. It probably doesn’t help their impression of our sanity that we impress upon them that making the trip is not a good idea.
