Respect & Politics[edit]

I spent the whole month of February in Venezuela both and I found no problem what so ever when speaking about politics with people on the street and in other public environment - on the contrary I where often myself asked where I stood and could frequently easdrop (well that was unrepectful) on discussions about politics and news. ´´´´

Changes to "Eat"[edit]

I've been working on the Caracas Wikivoyage site and recently edited the "Eat" section for clarity and information. Cheers! —The preceding comment was added by (WT-en) Laurenlp (talkcontribs)

The people in Venezuela eats a lot of great foods. They have a lunch which means the whole family has to be there for this dinner. —The preceding comment was added by (WT-en) 216.77.166.183 (talkcontribs)

Prices in bolivares[edit]

Given the hyperinflation, any prices listed in bolivares that do not identify their dates, or were posted more than six months ago are completely meaningless. We should just remove them. Any comments? Ground Zero (talk) 20:19, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

  • I'm going to ask the question again, especially now that the articles states blunted that the prices are outdated. Why include them? Ground Zero (talk) 00:48, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
    • I have removed them from this article. Ground Zero (talk) 03:17, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Sorry I missed this, but I'd agree that pricing information is useless. Should we do the same for Caracas? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 05:03, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Wikidata items for dynamic map[edit]

To the right is the map with all Wikidata items for the states of Venezuela. This should simplify the work in case we want to change the district set-up in the future. The tool Wikidata Extractor has been used to create the mapshapes. --Renek78 (talk) 09:40, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

History[edit]

The history section is highly subjective and reads poorly. A summary without bias is necessary. —The preceding comment was added by 70.45.186.177 (talkcontribs)

Hi, 70.45.186.177, and welcome! I moved your post to the end of the page, which is where new posts on talk pages go, and "signed" for you - please type 4 tildes at the end of each post you make to a talk page.
The standard here is Wikivoyage:Be fair - not a neutral point of view like in Wikipedia, but we like to avoid political disputes on Wikivoyage whenever possible, though it's sometimes necessary to report on them to some extent when they occur in possible travel destinations. I don't take a position on how biased or unbiased that section was or is, but if it's unfair, indeed, please change it in any way that makes it fairer. If any of your changes are controversial, they can be discussed here. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:25, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
