Balla Turay in Caracas

Balla (an EducAid student who received scholarship to study ICT) has been in Venezuela for a month or so now.  He has finally been allowed to get out and about.  At first, they were banned from receiving visitors or phone calls and even from leaving the compound!  Very strange and not a little disquieting.

Now, at last, he has been permitted to go on a tour of Caracas.  Here are some photos to prove it:

Apparently Spanish is going well too!
