Bolivares of Broken Dreams

July 19, 2012

Well, after three days of traveling, three days of planes, and three days of eating greasy arepas, I’m in Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela. This is the first place that the Posadas (guest houses) would let me go outside. Apparently it’s not safe to walk around even in the day in Caracas or Cotia LA Mar. Puerto Ordaz is a great city though with tons of side of the road attractions, empanada stands and Chavez posters. It seems really Venezuelan. Tomorrow I’m off to Canaima and Angel Falls. Very excited to get to the middle of nowhere…
