      ... 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. It´s a pretty colonial-style setup with more four-wheel drives than we´ve seen elsewhere. There´s a huge Aladdin`s cave of a gift shop with things we might have ...

      Waiting... I think that's been the primary feature of the last 36 hours. Several hours in the desolation of Terminal 5 in Heathrow, some broken sleep on the flight to Madrid and finally to the long-awaited flight to Caracas... Delayed on the tarmac by one hour, no biggie...

      I expected to catch up all that lost sleep on Madrid-Caracas. Alas, it was not to be so. I don't care how comfortable airline seats are suppose to be; sitting upright is not the natural position for sleep for ...

Until my next post....Have a great day!

      Despite the failures of the "Bolivarian Revolution" and poor security situation (crime has increased 67% since Chavez took office in 1998), I was given the royal treatment by my hosts. They provided me with a private room in their ...

      Day 2:

      We arrived in Caracas after a long,hot and uncomfortable flight to a rather daunting experience where we were descended upon by airport officials (rumoured to be corrupt). Thankfully we quickly moved through the airport and located our hotel shuttle bus - completely unscathed and contrary to the rumours found the officials to be extremely kind and helpful.

      Day 3:

      We swiftly left Caracas upon ...
