Tomorrow will end Viva Venezuela World Festival, My Beloved Homeland, and judging by everything we have seen through the small screen and the networks, especially through MinCultura, this has been a very eventful meeting of flavor and tradition, and also a lot of learning.

When an event of this magnitude is structured for the first time, there are always details to save, options to correct, proposals to analyze, and wishes to fulfill. That's all it's about, because if it were perfect, we already know...

Not everyone is satisfied. There are those who think that salsa is traditional and even bolero. There are those who miss the Ancients of the Stadium, and there are those who wanted to see original ancestral rites, evoking the “I speak to Caracas”, by our Carlos Azpúrua. In some cases it is about complacency and in others it is about placement.

In our personal case we viewed heritage presentations with caution, lest they be later taken as an emergency resource for other events. We understand that if we have World Heritage Sites our people see them and share them, but that they are all, from the making of hammocks with curagua, to the Mapoyo Nation speaking their language, which has cost so much to save.

We salute and recognize the colossal effort of the authorities, starting with Minister Villegas, who does not lose his smile, despite his fatigue and everything that must be resolved at the last minute.

We salute those who from other nations shared their songs, dances and tradition, in addition to their resistance because, in short, what was this world festival if not the song of resistance of peoples who know that the Revolution, if not cultural, is not such?

Let's look at other countries whose lessons are political and economic because they go deeply through culture and ancestral tradition.
