    The title of this thread is somewhat misleading.

    I fully agree, Andrea. An interesting story, an isolated incident....that's all, no more than that.

    I agree with CindyO, isolated incident and not something to cause concern for tourists. I have been trying to follow some of the unrest in Venezuela but I wouldn't want someone who is planning a trip to be deterred by something like this. I guess living near DC, I am used to protests of all kinds being a regular thing on the news. These types of things happen everywhere. A few months back a woman tried to ram her car through the white house gates and ended up being killed by Capitol Police when she tried to do the same at the Capitol building.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
