Not only Andrés is an Izquierda Nacional man.  He is also in close 
contact with the Venezuelans.  It is my impression (and will get in 
touch with AS to see what can he tell me, of course he won't tell me 
_all of it_) that they are betting to a relatively fast though not 
violent constitution of a South American oil/gas company.

Venezuelans have already drafted a project to link Bolivia to the 
Great South American Gas Pipe Line, which for the time being linked 
the Orinoco gas fields with Belem in Brazil, and from that place 
Southwards to Buenos Aires.

Maybe a South American Hydrocarbons Company, together with a South 
American Network of Gas Lines, may become a stride towards socialism 
larger than many may guess.

I am not thinking in terms of technological mysticism.  I am thinking 
in terms of a unified South America, which will be quite harder to 
beat than the splintered one we have now.

I am more convinced as time passes by that we are witnessing 
momentous though not heroic events.
