... 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 ...

Then we had some really nice conversation as usual (with Monica and Alex, the very welcoming couple that are hosting me). Afterwards we went grocery shopping and I made eveyrone (Monica, Alex, and their two kids Tomas and Mateo) some grilled cheese sandwiches and ...

We had figured maybe the bus would take 1 1/2 hour to get to the airport, but with the easy traffic (apparently a rarity in Caracas), we arrived at the airport in less than an hour. Fantastic! We weren't exactly at the airport, however. We had been dropped off on a main freeway, where we simply had to use ...

Once more into the breach

... back at which point I'm completely confused as to how much I am actually paying and what's going on but eventually we set off to get into Caracas.

Although we don't. We drive about 5 minutes before another conversation between Carla and the taxi driver and it seems man mountain Mike didn't pay the taxi driver and the taxi driver is still annoyed that mike has taken a very handsome tip (I think about 10 US dollars) for his efforts after I ...
