I am from Colombia, our nearest neighbor is Venezuela, I traveled over there three years ago for a little time now the situation between the two countries is different from the British-EU situation. In Colombia you don´t accept Bolivares(venezuela´s national money) because it has a very low value, but in Venezuela everyone want to get Pesos(Colombia´s national money) because just a few pesos are a lot of Bolivares.

Hi Toma English,
I heard that the situation in Egypt is critic. What is really happening? I s the situation as alarmant as the media report? How far are you from the "critic" zones?
Hope for you and all egyptian people to be fine.
