Venezuela: Narrated Photo Tour

The blogosphere is busy, as always with news from and about Venezuela. Daniel Duquenal is back from vacation with what he calls a “crazy round up of news.” MIguel Octavio has a thorough explanation of a proposal in the state of Zulia which would grant it more autonomy. Resource-rich Zulia has long contributed much more to federal budget than it receives. Oil Wars has photographs of a protest march against the war in Iraq. And finally, something I had never seen before on a blog: a narrated photo tour of Caracas by Economic Professor Alfredo Ascanio. It's especially useful if you understand Spanish, but just seeing the pictures and hearing Ascanio's voice reminds us of the, at times, intimate nature of the web.
