Caracas, Venezuela is the world murder capital. People are afraid to go out. Venezuela is also the inflation capital, with the worst inflation worldwide. It seems these two go side by side. About 72 percent of monthly wages are being spent just to buy food.
It’s common for people to spend all day without eating. In some cases, families choose who gets to eat and who doesn’t. This is common in poor countries. I remember Diego Maradona, the controversial former football star, used to tell a story I remember well. As a child he would have dinner but usually his mother and father wouldn’t eat. They would come up with excuses, say they already ate when he wasn’t around, or that they weren’t feeling very well. The truth was that there simply wasn’t enough food in the house for everyone.
Stock up folks. Food and water. You’ll need them every day no matter what and the day you don’t have either one you will regret no preparing.
