Battle of the Billboards

The presidential election is upon us here in Venezuela, and Venezuelans will be heading out to vote this Sunday.  Things have been pretty quiet, although earlier this week people on both sides were campaigning like crazy to get those last few votes.   Yesterday in my neighbourhood, there was a group for the opposition out on the main road basically just having a party....Although drivers were not too happy since the traffic lights were out (not sure if that was a coincidence?) and so between that and the party-ers, traffic was at a standstill.  Nevertheless, they were having fun dancing in the street, handing out flyers and posters, and chatting with everyone.  There were even a few enthusiastic people out waving great big flags and I witnessed one woman almost take a police officer out with hers.  Not once, but twice.  The cop was NOT happy, but he didn't stop her either!!!  Right now, it sounds like it's really up in the air  who is going to win this election, but what people do know is that this is a very important time in the history of Venezuela and the outcome could potentially change the course of this country.  Would you please join me in praying for Venezuela, that God's will would be done no matter who wins the election, and that it would all just pass quietly and without incident.  Thank you!  Here are a few pictures I've taken lately around the city....

Chavez, current president of 14 years

Capriles, the opposition
NOT a presidential candidate.

Oh, haha, Sheldon! ;) The last name of the opposition leader doesn't sound all that hispanic to me... ;P

Municipal elections here--pretty serious stuff, lots of signs, flag-wavers in the streets, handing out flyers, etc, all for mayor of the comuna and city council positions. Still, more civil, I am sure, than V. Chile is a very orderly country.
