I've been travelling around with my parents a lot. Africa, Europe... This time our path led us to the magical Venezuela. That amazing country immediately won my heart. Nature is simply breath taking and it's people are so full of energy, positive thinking and happiness, even though their lives aren't perfect or easy. Sometimes they must fight for their living and don't know what they are going to eat the next day. They are not wealthy or life secured, they have many problems and a lot of criminal but they have something that is more important then all that. They are rich inside, open and they found a way to be happy.
We spent first three days in Canaima. A beautiful and wild region in the heart of Venezuela.
|In the distance we were able to see giant Auyan tepui (name means bloody peaks)|
|Ah, beautiful Canaima. It was breath taking!!|
|One of the most amazing things was water. As you can see it wasn't blue or green but reddish brown! It really looked like cocacola. Like cocacola lake!|
There were big amounts of foam on the water. And you won't believe what it was used for. They use it as soap! Amazing, right?
|And here we have the famous Angel falls. We had to walk a lot to get to them, but all I can say is that it was worth it! Some were even swimming at a foot of the fall.|
|The animals at Orinoco are amazing. And there are so many!! There are parrots and other types of birds, monkeys, caimans, turtles, fishes, I even saw a tarantella and a scorpion.|
|We were placed in the lodges you can see above, that instead of doors they had palm leaves and were open toward the river side . One night my dad almost fell into the water because he missed the entrance. Luckily there was a low tide at that time.|
|The funny thing was that they had parrots everywhere. Some were as big as the one on the photo and some of them were small. They weren't tied or trapped, they just were there.|
