Although when we got there the military helicopter had arrived to bring food to the soldiers who guard the Lost City, so it kind of took away from the ancient aspect of the ruins to see a huge, military helicopter using ...
... Africa myself, but it always make you feel rough about it and it's not nice to see as they probably have nowhere else to go. With the heat of the day in, there was a large mix of locals and tourists at the marina splashing around in what looked to be pretty average looking brown, dirty water. But we made our way past all the statues and monuments of Simon Bolivar and take off on our run back. I had mapped another monument in a little area a few streets down so we head there. ...
