The devil is back with UII

November 25, 2017

A friend, LFU, came to visit and asked me “Do you want me to get you the price of the arepa?”. I said yes, but you have to find the same arepa and arepera. It is queso de mano at GHA. He went on Nov 20th and found the price to be “only” Bs. 35,000 a full 2100 times that last time on July 20th. 2016, before my accident. Little did I know that statistics would be ruined by the accident. (Of which I am better).  That is a full 29% per month roughly.

This agrees with what people feel and with estimates of Torino capital of inflation.

Of course, I don’t know whether the arepas were similar or not, but I thougt the record needed to be completed.

    Q’ bueno q’ hayas vuelto. Y hoy miso encontre una areparia en Richmond, VA donde por primera vez en 15 anos comi una arrepa de queso y una cachapa de queso de mano. Estuve en el cielo y pense en la Caracas de 1989 q’ conoci y en el Diablo…y hoy mismo, apareces otra vez en mi pantalla.

    Estoy bien contento verte y te deseo mucho tiempo mas analizando y compartiendo pensamientos de los horrores de Chavismo.

    It is so good to see the “devil” raising hell again! Just saw an article about how a hamburger costs $170 in Caracas at the official rate.

  10. Glenn Says:

    Glad to see you

  11. Juli Carbonell Says:

    Happy happy day! The devil is back and the arepas con queso might be only 35,000 Bs each but they certainly are MUCH SMALLER AND THINNER AND THE CHEESE TRANSPARENT

  12. Noel Says:

    Hola Miguel,

    It is great to see you back at the typewriter so to speak! I look forward to more posts. Best wishes for 2018!

  13. William Skocpol Says:

    I’m glad that you are feeling better, even if the price of arepas is way too high.

  14. Anon Says:

    I hope your recovery is going well. Many people are missing your commentary. It is nice to see you writing again.

  15. Marilu VCLF Says:

    Bienvenido!

  16. Bill Skocpol Says:

    I’m glad that you are recovering, even if the price of arepas isn’t.

  17. Daveed Says:

    The devil returns for the induction of Venezuela into the hyperflation hall of fame with Weimar and Zimbabwe!
