President Hugo Chavez said something very reasonable on Sunday.
He stated that there is no reason to continue calling the world’s tallest waterfall, which is in Venezuela, Angel Falls. The name Angel comes from the American pilot who spotted the waterfall from an airplane in 1933.
President Chavez is instead calling for the name to revert to its original indigenous name – Kerepakupai-Meru.
According to Chavez, this is the name Indians used for the waterfall long before adventurer Jimmie Angel flew over it. “We should change that name, right? With all respect to that man who came, who saw it.”
