As I have said before this is a small city, so things can not go unnoticed, this afternoon as I went shopping to the only "Big Mall" we have here. They were promoting the fight there and I had a chance to shake hands and talk to Jose Luis Varela from Venezuela and exchanged e-mails because I didn't have my camera or cell phone with me, I had just gotten off work and was on my way home to fix lunch. Somebody kindly took a picture of me with Jose Luis Varela, Olimpic winner from Venezuela, I hope I get it somehow soon.
