I left Maturin Friday lunchtime (the evening flight was cancelled as it is Easter, a major holiday in Venezuela), overnighted in Caracas and flew on to Houston today. Continental upgraded me to First Class which was very nice indeed (believe it or not, other airlines would rather have an empty First Class than reward frequent flyers with an upgrade!). The photo below was taken from my airport hotel window - there is no doubt that sex sells alcohol in Venezuela!
