Carlos Camacho is a bilingual (English-Spanish) US-educated, professional journalist based in Caracas, Venezuela. Accredited with the Colegio Nacional de Periodistas, the top professional body for journalists here. Holds dual citizenship, Venezuelan-Spanish. 100% street legal. I know a lot about oil, economics, politics and crime. Writing is my forte, but I have been doing a lot of radio on Skype lately, for the BBC, CBC and France24.

Sanitation workers no longer bother picking up the bags of refuse, the tag-along guys do it for them in exchange for the ride. It rained Wednesday, so the garbage men stayed inside the truck while the garbage boys picked up the rain-soaked bags.
