River forest, stilt villages, lightening

... the lake and harms the shore and wildlife. The view from my tent was to die for, and the edge of the lake was about 5m from my door, alas I could not swim in it. We have come here to Lake Maracaibo and more specifically the Catatumbo River, to see the stilt villages and more importantly the lightening storms. It is a natural phenomenon that happens about 300 days of the year. There is no accompanying lightening as the storms are more than 20km away. We saw a few flashes ...

... came. There really isnīt anything here from before the colonial period except the native people walking around in their traditional gear. Itīs a strange mix seeing them walking around in a modern society. Venezuelans, when asked, donīt really seem to know what was here before the colonial era.

From Mérida it is said to be fairly easy to cross the border with Colombia, but somewhere in my guidebook I found a lost paragraph about the Guajira indians who live in stilt houses on a lagoon close to the Colombian border up north. Although this area has a bit of a bad reputation with drug gangs and illegal immegrants attempting to cross the border, I make a round-up of my Venezuelan currency and take a nightbus to Maracaibo, close ...

Being a Captain's Wife is Fun

A travel blog entry by patsypink on Dec 04, 2009

... the thoughts are there.

We put the clocks back half an hour, as Maracaibo is four and a half hours behind England.

We shot through between Cuba and Haiti in the early hours of the 30th Nov, so I missed that sight, but woke up to the Caribbean Sea, as smooth as a mill pond and very blue, as was the sky. We saw about five flying fish as we stood on deck, all scurrying away from the ship. The temperature is hotting up nicely although the AC on the ship is not as ...
