Some day I would like to do this for a living but I'm enjoying it as a hobby for now.
Couple of samples:
QUESTION: Have there been journalists detained by the government?
ANSWER: … a group of foreign correspondents were at risk … and were saved by the National Guard. This information was not broadcast though by the press because of this permanent campaign to represent a picture of Venezuela as a country in violence, chaos, where the foreign press is aggressed.
QUESTION: You are Roman Catholic. Mr. Capriles – your principal opponent – is a Roman Catholic. You have both met with Pope Francis. He’s the first Latin American pope. Could he mediate? And do you believe outside mediation is necessary? Can Venezuela continue like this?
ANSWER: Well, I have very good relations with Pope Francis. I read constantly what he says and follow his speeches. Pope Francis has come to renew the Catholic Church and he has new air to renew the spiritual world. Now, Venezuela does not need mediation.
So today, I got to hang out with , and over at the Butterfly Wonderland. It was pretty cool - well, actually, it was hot and humid. Whatever. LOL!
Took my youngest along...and let me tell you, she had one heck of a time remembering "Don't Touch The Butterflies". :D
