Hugo Chavez Renames Angel Falls

This bit of news maybe a few days old, but when you're in New Zealand, it's not like you're actively paying attention to the news as the days are very busy.

Anyways, Hugo Chavez is not a very shy guy when it comes to making headlines, and this is one that is certain to shakeup the waterfall world a bit. Chavez decided to rename Angel Falls to Kerepakupai-merú, which is derived from the indigenous Pemón language.

You can read this development from a New York Times article here.
