... 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 ...

Full day in Caracas

A travel blog entry by christianbjork on Dec 28, 2012

Got up around 7:30am since Alexandra needed to go to work around 8 or so. Took a quick shower, ate a breakfast arepa with her and took off to take a tour of the town.

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

... kilos, including both bags, so we had made sure we met the criteria before heading to the airport. The people in front of us, however, had tried to pull a fast one by putting all their heavy stuff in their carry-on. You should have seen their faces when the agent told them the weight limit included their hand bags. They had to shell out more money - we were grateful we had bothered to read the fine print! As we waited for our flight to Los Roques, we looked out the window ...

Once more into the breach

Carla then explains the the 300 bolivares I got back are for the taxi driver for my part of the ride. Fine by me!

So just now calculating this all out I somehow ended up not actually losing any money

80 US dollars is about 53 pounds

15 US dollars I got back is 10 pounds

300 Bolivares on the official exchange rate of 1 pound = almost 6 Bolivares is 50 pounds

So I gave 53 but somehow ended up ...
