We just got back from the mountains. One of the downsides to not having a car is that we don't get to get outside of the city very often. But we decided to take a trip out of the city to a town called Colonia Tovar. It's about 2.5 hours away by car. There's something fun about this town. It's a little German village, complete with German food, in the mountains. So it's pretty, it's not the city, fresh air, good food, there's grass and it's cooler. Did we mention it's in the mountains?
|People working on the side of the mountain. This is |
probably a strawberry field since the mountainsides
were covered with them.

|We were amused by this wishing well. It had coins but also|
many bills worth 2 or 5 (sometimes even 10) bolivars!
|Two of the many chocolate suckers we HAD|
to buy while we were there
|Funny faces during our pretend time|
|More funny faces|
|This is what happens when the taxi you arranged to come |
pick you up arrives over 3 hours late....
