A CLAP box, a Venezuelan government handout of basic food supplies, is seen amid garbage dump along a canal in Maracaibo, July 26, 2018. In the past, Zulians considered themselves living in a 'Venezuelan Texas', rich from oil and with an identity proudly distinct from the rest of the country.

Judith Palmar holds her mother Sibilina Caro hand after feeding her at their home in Maracaibo, July 25, 2018. When the lights do go out, Palmar wheels her paralyzed mother outside because the house becomes intolerably hot. One power cut damaged an air conditioning unit, which Palmar cannot afford to replace on her pension of about $1.50 a month due to inflation, estimated by the opposition-run Congress in June at 46,000 percent a year.
