... 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 ...

... a nice, relaxed time. After a while hanging out and walking around the park, my Bolivian friend who's studying in Caracas, Graciela, called me and I went to hang out with her near the Altamira Metro Station.

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

... had clearly seen better days. Although it possessed a large board-walk with locals hanging about playing dominoes, drinking beer and people watching, everything had a dilapidated feel. The area was clearly meant to support a large number of beach-goers, but instead there were maybe 15 people and lots of cats doing their best to fill up the vast space and make it look interesting.

Our prospects of finding a decent dinner that did not consist of fried food looked ...

Once more into the breach

A travel blog entry by place77 on Dec 24, 2010

... fine and had plenty of time to hop off at Frankfurt and then walk round to my Caracas flight so everything went smoothly which was a good start.

Upon clearing the airport that's when the fun starts to begin, change some dollars in to the local Bolivares and we are good to go.
Stepping out of the airport is fairly chaotic, it seemed more so than anywhere else I've been in south america although as it's Venezuela I'm being a little more on ...
