Sun's rays warm the streets of Caracas and exclude passers-by, the sun has become a major source for the Venezuelans weeks, which stands during the day and the skyline t then there. cold and in darkness is endless is uncertain.

It is Wednesday, the week has not come to an end, but it brought a new challenge into which the country has to face: after a second choice that will influence it. at least 19 states.

The darkness does not come alone, it comes with a solitude of a city seen for bruising and a disturbance caused by the problems they faced in daily life and desire t to be a current state.

On Calle 13 in Lomas del Ávila, Caracas, you hear whistling, shouting and the sound of barrels that comes. Opening in the ground represents a lot of solution to one of the worst problems faced by a failure of the electricity service: a lack of water.

"We don't want Maduro, we don't want Guaoo, we just want to live well," cries a long way. No-one asks him, but nobody agrees.

Plastic vessels of all sizes are declining in the sidewalk which is surrounded by the surface water well and in a queue people are waiting for their patience.

"Up in the area we have more than 22 days without water; when the light is off everything goes down, we can't see any improvement. It catches water from here before the light comes out. The answer is the same light back the same solution, ”said a woman with El Nacional.

On her knees and helping herself with a rope, another woman stands on the edge of the opening and tries to keep her water reserve, "that's not enough," she recalls. her equipment.

Failure to fail the electrical system will not only damage the basic services, but also reveal other problems which people may have to deal with.

"How will I buy and eat my food? If I buy it, I can't buy food. There's no way of getting out, it's all bad," mourning for me. one of the women who is waiting for water is getting from the newly-made well that has been security for many.

Some mobile shops, mobile service stations, ice cream sales, have been prepared for more than two weeks from the first black leaving of the countryside in the dark and the image is similar: township customs were often disputed. millions of people who don't know it at the time they can return to be in the dark of quiet, in the middle of uncertainty.

All the broken pipes, wells or faults in the center of the city are presented as an opportunity, as a measure not only of struggling to overcome the problems of the depression, but also the same system. T some people do. more than two months without rain falling through your house pipes.

"The first time we are looking for water here, but in our neighborhood, in Guaicoco, as it will not rain 4 January," said a visitor to Pajaritos Station on Avenida Boyacá, which is called Honey coat better. , where a Forest Fire Department has a filtering system at Head Office which could be of benefit to anyone in need of water.

Coat Mil has become a strategic point, not just a road that connects Caracas from the center to the east, now it is also a range of Harnessing water.

The mid-day heat is stronger and people's line will grow rapidly; it's all plastic, falling from bone and prayer together, but quietly, "I hope the water won't run out, I hope the light doesn't go away."

José Luis Gutiérrez, Carlos Moncada and José Luis Patiño as three men who share a lorry with which they carry large containers with water in their homes, will stay at kilometers 15 of the Mariche Flasse and have a one and a half years without the drinking water service; they have been experts in collecting, buying and storing the liquid.

“In every time we have paid a number of cases, none of them gave us clean water, we had to clean it with anything handed to my wife, especially so that he would be able to 'eat kids,' said Gutiérrez.

Concerns of the Gutiérrez family are not restricted to the lack of light and the lack of clean water; No matter how many purification treatments they make, they have not been able to stop their children.

“The children have become ill, they don't stop the cholera, that's because of the water, it makes them bad and they get rid of it,” José Luis said. T who do all they can to do when they leave the light, they all get aiming for them, although they are in the dark, they deserve to be happy.

"Could it be better?" They want to themselves, but nobody answers them.

"The main roads in the main town are lined with a long series of cars, communicating with them is a priority," you must do everything before your signal fails again " t some people. The Prados del Este highway and the Altamira dealer, the Francisco Fajardo highway, became the strategic hub for connections.

After the 7-night hook-up – filmed into the country's longest darkness in history – and the depression of Monday 25, Venezuela can't get reverb, living in paranoia and in anxiety, at any time when the electrical system leaves again and uncertainty takes everything, making a proper routine. t
