Will the real Katy please stand up.

Hello everyone. Long time readers will remember that my husband, Juan Cristóbal Nagel – now one of the site’s co-editors – initially posted on this blog (and took time away from me and his daughters) using my name as a pseudonym. Thank God that’s over.

The reason I’m writing is that for the next few days I will have access to the blog. Quico is in Caracas, Gustavo in Barquisimeto, and Juan will be live on CNN Chile starting at 9:00pm (Chile time) on Sunday. Therefore, they thought it would be convenient if someone else had access to the blog and was out of reach of Chavista internet control.

It’s nice to meet you all, but keep in mind that I will not be posting my own thoughts on the election (except to let you know if Juan is crying or drunk on live TV). All I will be doing is transmitting whatever they want me to. Please keep in mind that in the event of a traffic surge crashes the site (it happened the last time, although Quico thinks it’s unlikely now that we’re on WordPress.com) we will be posting on the Facebook page, so do take a minute to go over there, or just click on “like” on the Facebook box to the right of this post.

And as we would say in Chile: “Hay un camino, POH”.
