Wow...I am so happy that you are no longer in Venezuela, but boy do I pray for the people there.

Wonder is Sean Penn 'walked' alone anywhere?

I thought that Israel was the #1 danger to world peace!

bar, I saw a grafiti in caracas that blames Israel for 9/11 as well.

In South Africa, you'd be scared to walk outside your house, let alone a kilometer.

Interesting........
I do wonder also about Egypt and Jordan!

jungle mom, they should add to New Zealand to the list! There's no where here I'd walk 100 metres alone at night, this really isn't a safe country anymore.
