A Venezuelan Expat in US Reacts to Death of Chavez

The World
Just five minutes from The World's studios in Boston is a Venezuelan restaurant: La Casa De Pedro. I traveled there with Senior Producer Andrea Crossan to find some local reaction to the news from Venezuela. Pedro Alarcon is the owner of La Casa De Pedro. He's from Caracas. Alarcon serves up spicy and heavenly empanadas, fruit smoothies and strong opinions. After ordering me a small feast he led me through the kitchen to his office. There, the TV was on, tuned to a Spanish language news channel – a live report from those crowded streets of Caracas. Alarcon shares his thoughts on the death of Hugo Chavez.
