On September 20th, 2002, the very first Caracas Chronicles post hit the interwebs.
Today, just like back then,
…the slow-motion train-wreck that is Venezuela under Chávez is full of little, slightly absurd side-shows, newspaper stories that teeter on the border between alarming and just plain silly.
Honestly, if you’d asked the guy who wrote that if he thought that nine years and 4,982 posts later he’d still be at it, I’m sure he’d just laugh.
Caracas Chronicles is 100% reader-supported.
We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
