President Hugo Chávez's return to Venezuela after more than two months in Cuba has been taken by many of his followers as evidence of his recovery from the toughest stage of his illness; hence, the festive mood near Bolívar Square, the meeting point of most of them.

Before 7 a.m. in the morning, people started to rally on the "hot corner," downtown Caracas. By 11 a.m. approximately 300 people were present, all of them singing mottos in favor of the president and thanking Cuba for having taken care of him.

Many people would go to Bolívar Square by midday wearing t-shirts which read "I am Chávez." However, they were not spontaneous attendees, but public servants emboldened to appear in the scene.

About four blocks from Bolívar Square, loud speakers were placed to play songs extolling the president.

At several Bolívar Squares across the nation rallies were being held to welcome Chávez. The events were convened by Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? 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.
