You want food in Venezuela? Wait in line and get marked like an animal.
Waiting in line for hours to buy Food
I have been following your videos and sharing them with the wife...you
prove my commonsense right and keep things real. Thank you. I saw this
today and thought...I wonder how this applies to what you faced in
Thanks for your email. Things aren’t that bad in Argentina yet but its looking more like Venezuela each year. If things don’t get better soon Argentina may see something similar. I did see shortages and rationing of certain products, just two liters of milk per family, or a limit of one packet of sugar or flour and one bottle of vegetable oil. You just don’t appreciate the plentitude of stuff available to you until you’re told “only one unit per customer, sir”.
These are all events we can all learn from. Never think “it will never happen here”, you just don’t know what life will throw your way next. Let this be an inspiration to buy that extra pallet of canned fruit or another bag of lentils or rice.
You just don’t find sugar, oil or flour in Venezuela. People have to wait in line for hours. When the sun go down the streets become deserted, even restaurants wont open. There’s plenty of videos in youtube showing this.
It wasn’t that long ago that I wrote about a woman that killed her own sister over a dispute over a pack of food in Venezuela.
When these things happen, when people get desperate, you will see the worst of them.
