What you won't see on today's Funeral Cadena Broadcast

These photos I took are for all the doubters.

These are the immediate surroundings of la Academia Militar, where, in two hours, a solemn State funeral with foreign dignitaries and heads of state will be held. It…how to put this delicately?…smells like shit.

I really doubt el propio Chávez would’ve wanted it this way.

Nice place for a state funeral, huh?

On the other hand, the lines to see Chávez one last time are far better organized today. Maybe they read yesterday’s post…

In other news: the Ávila is still spectacular.
