A colonial village, Caracas and a socialist city

A travel blog entry by sueandludi


... Chavez. So we back-tracked and took a tip from the guidebook to go by bus up to the old colonial village of El Hatillo.

Transport is working normally, including the big clean metro free all this week. El Hatillo is up on a hilldside but now Caracas suburbs have entirely enclosed it, below, to the sides and above.

After going to the airline office we went to a place and I got my upper legs waxed. It cost $200 ...

Day 3:

We swiftly left Caracas upon ...
