It is a beautiful place, but only talking about natural place, because the city is awful, and you just hear horrible music, people talking terrible, and frequently don't have water and light, or necessary things to eat.
We went to buy some medicines and spent around a hour waiting to pay it.
On the other hand, we went to buy "empanadas" to breakfast and I just could see people very poor, but I am not just talking about people without enough money to have necessary things to live, I am talking about to people poor in their mind, and without intention to live better. Woman how sells and make the "empanadas" is a old woman, and in that house lives around 12 people, with babies, children and adults; and kids don't have toys and they play with waste, and bigger children care the babies. Nobody have bought a floor (it is almost of earth) neither a roof (it is of zinc). Nevertheless, each time I have gone there, I have seen around 10 people waiting for their "empanadas". It is impossible to think this people are not be able to live better, in my opinion it is not the laking of money the reason they are poor, it is the lacking of progress idea.
After this thought, I just think that it is a country rich in natural resource, but very poor in development and lifestyle; it is exactly the same situation of the woman who sell and make "empanadas" here.
In this country, all year you can have whatever fruit you want; never you need to prepare yourself for difficult weather or others problems like those. It is possible, it easy situations is the reason people don't need to think and learn ways to development their life.
Here out of Caracas, with very warm weather and awful place, it is easy to understand the reason of people don't looking for better opportunities or development... I am very sad about all these things, and worried about collect all necessary things to go to live to NZ and become me a kiwi.
Some days ago, my husband tools me that when he was a teen, policeman fallen out his bag to prove if he was eggs to attack people in the streets, and he was walking and policemen could stop him and check his pockets and bag during long time just because was a teen and he could be a criminal.
Definitive I don't want that my kids neither my brother live that kind of experiences, I want to live in respect place where they have a worthy life. For this I am here, out of my city and with wonderful people, and I am just practicing English. Just because it is the way to go to better life.
See you soon.
