I decided to make the overland journey from Caracas to Cartagena instead of flying to save a bunch of money. Probably the right decision to make. But definitely shouldn't have bothered to split the journey at Maracaibo to get some rest. On the return leg, we just took the direct bus and endured the 23-hour journey which was not that bad. There …
... that Iīd never seen before. We bought some so I could try them. They had all strange names, I had already tried nispero which was a very soft fruit unlike anything I could compare it to. Guanabana which was similar in texture to nisparo but almost citrus in taste but banana-like in texture, the closest thing I could relate it to would be a custard apple. The list goes on. We stopped at some lights and bought some bananas. I didnīt want to ...
... in my life.. haha.. we FINALLY got to Maracaibo around 10:30pm or so... over 7 hours instead of the 3.5 or 4 hours people say it takes.
Then.... I took a taxi which left me at the wrong place, and had to take another one that finally left me at my friend Luis's house... and here I am! :)
longest travel day eeeever... pretty physically, mentally, and emotionally draining.
... continued...and then the never-ending speedbumps and police check points. The speedbumps are so big, Camilo had to try his best to cross them with the best leverage he has with both feet pressing against the asphalt. We followed the beat-up cars in the caravan of madness all the way to Maracaibo. A sight that soon became the norm, but at first resembled a grand prix of junkyard cars, swirving from left to right to avoid the ...
... over to conduct searches. Our bus got pulled over about an hour after the border. The bus attendant than proceeded to collect 10 pesos off all of the passengers which we later found out was used to pay the Police off so that we didn't have to take all of our bags off the bus and have them searched (aka hours added onto our trip). Best money I think we have ever spent ...

Had to stay here because Hotel Jolie lost our reservation. It's old and our room had a stale cigarette smell to it. The pasta I had from the restaurant on the second floor tasted like it was a re-heated boxed dinner meal from the supermarket. Tiny cockroaches in the toilet. Best to avoid this hotel. The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars is because the reception staff were OK to deal with. We only got to see the reception area of Hotel Jolie (also 3-star rated) , but it looks 10X nicer and cleaner.
