Sapitos de la noche

Welcome to yet another mostly English-language blog about life in Venezuela. Just what you've been waiting for!

If you want to know about politics and economics, you've probably come to the wrong place. There are people who know more Venezuelan political history than I ever will and there are those who can intuitively grasp structured notes. But somehow none of these people ever write about the peeping frogs that brighten the sounds of night from the headwaters of the Rio Guaire southwest of Caracas, across the mountains that enclose the city on south and north, and then out the other side as the river and freeway tumble down to the hot coast.

If you don't hear the tree frogs, I don't think the rest can make sense.
