Blogging from Brazil

Brazil today. Hortolandia this morning and Sao Paulo this afternoon.

On to Brasilia tonight.

Wish I had time to write more -- maybe catch up over the weekend.

I thought I left a comment yesterday but apparently not. I am very curious about what the South Americans think of Hugo Chavez. I hope you have a chance to discuss him with them.

I'm traveling on business, so we're not talking politics too much. But the body english on that one is interesting.

We had breakfast this a.m. with an expert on the country of Brazil, and he mentioned offhand that the Brazilian and Argentinian presidents elected not to invite Chavez to a recent celebration of a trade agreement between Brazil and Argentina. Venezuela is trying to join the agreement, and probably, but the indication was that Chavez is sort of an embarassment.

Interim elections this Sunday in Venezuela, and it's not clear how well Chavez' party will do.
