Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is prepared to attend the inauguration of this Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez and wished him getting well soon one more time.

The Venezuelan leader is recovering from a surgery to counter his cancer, Colombian media cited on Tuesday.

No date of arrival was specified.

As stated by Caracol Radio and quoted by DPA, Santos spoke on the phone with Venezuela's Vice-President  Nicolás Maduro to confirm that he and his Foreign Minister María Ángela Holguín plan to attend the sworn-in ceremony. According to the news, the event could be postponed because of Chávez's health condition.

For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
