Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro arrived on Monday in Amazonas state to meet with his Colombian counterpart Juan Manuel Santos, for the first time as the Venezuelan Head of State.

The meeting is expected to take place at the Army Brigade number 7, in Puerto Ayacucho, the capital city of Amazonas state, south Venezuela. It was initially slated for 1:00 pm. Nevertheless, President Santos had not appeared yet.

Fully reestablishment of bilateral relations is top in the agenda. A couple of months ago, Venezuelan-Colombian ties were at stake after Santos met with Henrique Capriles Radonski, the Venezuelan opposition leader and ex presidential candidate who contested the results of the election for president.

In any case, Venezuelan authorities have expressed their willingness to get the relations back to normal. For his part, Santos cherishes to "set clear rules of the game."

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
