Other Venezuelan blogs also report on the constant spot shortages that we are getting used to live with in Venezuela (well, some such as fresh milk are becoming near constant shortages...)
Imaginativa (writing from Valencia) regales us with her search for sugar taking her to the largest supermarket store in her area. There she found fructose, Splenda and other non sugar sweeteners. But no sugar (it should be in the huge gap of the picture). Her dietetic observations are worth a visit.
