Caracas fixers

Dear all,

I need to go to Caracas for 8-9 days on short notice, to do work involving the barrios. Any leads on potential streetwise fixers/contacts will be received with much gratitude… also any do’s/dont’s of that city, as I realize it is a somewhat tricky place to navigate.

All the best,

Jonas, try to PM Stephen Ferry who, if memory serves, was recently working in Venezuela and is an old Latin-American hand.  Good luck

I have a good venezuelan friend from Caracas who might help you. He and his dutch wife speak english and i´m sure they would help you to find someone who you can trust or give you some orientation of the city itself. please right me at luizhmax@hotmail.com if you are interested. cheers. Luiz

Yo Jonas, send me a post I got contacts in the barrios, as I worked in there during the Chavez referendum with Cuban doctors.

Jonas – my girlfriend is from Caracas – currently living in London – She spent several years working for a charity assisting slum kids in the barrios.  If you’re still in need of contacts let me know (PM) and I’ll connect you – I’m sure she would useful.
