16. La Vega is a crime-ridden barrio, whose citizens live in fear
This is from El Pais, a Spanish newspaper:

http://www.elpais.com/articulo/portada/Caracas/guerra/nombre/elpepusoceps/20100418elpepspor_9/Tes

"Caracas vive una guerra en la cual todos pierden. Nadie gana. Nadie gana nada en una guerra que consume cada ao miles de vctimas. Caracas vive una guerra que no tiene nombre. Se trata de una guerra silente que muchas veces no se puede ver porque el encierro, producto del temor, permite a sus habitantes quedarse ciegos de tanto mirar en la oscuridad."

Translation:

"Caracas is experiencing a war in which everyone loses. Nobody wins. Nobody wins anything in a war that consumed thousands of lives each year. Caracas is living through a war that has no name. It is a silent war that often can not be seen because its people are shuttered, as a result of fear, and blind from staring into the darkness. "
