... miles west of Caracas, above Catia, it seemed a bleak and isolated place from where we first saw it. But gradually the potential grew on us, and the good reality for the one thousand families already living there. In effect it is a very big council estate only about a fifith finished.

... before an absurdly early flight to Ushuaia.
Favourite Hotel: The Esplendor Savoy, Rosario, Argentina. Sheets, A/C, pool, glorious.
Least favourite Hotel: Miramar, Santa Marta, Colombia. No light, porn star lobby, no windows.
Biggest waste of time: Spending too long on the Galapagos islands to be with Juan when I should have been exploring the rest of Ecuador.
Best waste of time: Isla del Pirata, spending time with Thomas instead of ...
