Going to the movies!!!

by carolinaEspada

We like cinema. We love going to the movies. We get to see almost all of the films (specially those that come directly from Hollywood). But we also get to see French, Italian, Spanish, Indian, Canadian, Norweyian, etc. etc. etc. films. We are really lucky! We have "movie festivals" that last for a week or more: The Spanish (from Spain) week, The Swedish week, The Belgian week, etc.

My mother refuses to see a Hollywood movie. She only likes masterpieces-art films like: "Babette's Feast", "Death in Venice"; "Cinema Paradiso"; "Estación Central" (brasilian film with actress Fernanda Montenegro nominated as Best Actress in the Oscar Ceremony... award that was given to Gwyneth Paltrow, for "Shakespeare in love"; "The Music Teacher" ; "The Piano" (with Holly Hunter); "Chocolat"; "Amelie"; "Delicatessen"; "Bleu"; "Blanc", "Rouge"; "Mon Uncle"; "Rashomon"; "The seven samurais" (the original by Kurosawa); "Mediterráneo"; "Profumo di donna" (the original one); "Zorba"; "The Red Balloon"; "Le Roi Dance", "Las noches de Cabiria" and anything filmed by Fellini... and very recently: "Italian Mambo" (from Canada), in which we laughed so hard that we ended up crying.

Do you want so see a film while staying in Caracas? There are movie theaters in all of the big shopping malls: The Sambil, the San Ignacio, the CCCT, the Concresa, the Humboldt, the Lido, the Plaza Las Américas, the Centro Plaza, the Paseo Las Mercedes, etc.etc.etc...

The movie theatre "Cine La Previsora" only shows art films and is not on a mall.

On the newspaper: "El Nacional" you can see all of the movie adds, specially on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (several pages, big pictures)...

In the photo is my friend Juan Pacheco with Pedro Almodóvar, one of the most famous movie directors of Spain... and of Europe... and of the world. Antonio Banderas started his career under Almodóvar's direction. I liked much more Antonio Banderas back then.

Fine leather shoes: ZAPATOS!!!

by carolinaEspada about Thousand zapaterías!!! = shoe stores!!!

New VTfriend, Alan (ATUFFT) reminded me to do a tip on venezuelan leather shoes. He is absolutely right. Our leather shoes (for ladies, gentlemen and children) are trully great. Why? Because -thanks to the early XX century inmigration- we inherited the italian shoemaking ART and tradition. FORZA ITALIA!!! And... GRAZIE ITALIA!!!

Let me copy-paste a bit of Alan's email:

(...) "please research the leather shoes shopping a little more before you write.
Whenever we go down to the many many little stores in the area of the
Congressional buildings, I look for good deals on men's leather soled shoes.
But, the best quality at a great price does take some time. Even so, I've
bought pairs of shoes that rival the best Italian shoes at a fraction of the
cost. I also know that women's shoes come in a fantastic variety although the
good leather shoes are sometimes mixed in with the factory made plastic and
vinyl versions sold at the stores where the Venezuelan kids are more to hang
out.

AlanVt" There are soooooo many malls in Caracas: Sambil, CCCT, Concresa, Paseo Las Mercedes, El Recreo, Centro Plaza, Centro Comercial Chacaíto, Boleíta Center...and many many many more. In all of those you can find hundreds of "zapaterías", shoe stores. All kind of shoes, styles, colors, "fashions", traditionals or not, etc... and if you change your $$$ or your Euros in bolívares, all of these trully fine leather shoes are really unexpensive...for you (not for us, venezuelans).

And there are still a couple of places where they make the shoe specially for you, a "shoemaker-made-shoe". But Ive never been to one of those shoe boutiques/ateliers, because Im sure I could not afford it.

All of the leather shoes Ive bougth in my life are either venezuelan made or italian made.

When I go to USA I buy what we call: "rubber shoes = zapatos de goma", meaning by that: tennis shoes, reeboks, sport shoes, running shoes, etc.

But FINE leather shoes, either in Venezuela or in Italy. I dont know... tons -TONS- of bolívares... not too many $$$ nor Euros. You should ask new VTfriend, Alan (ATUFFT).

Vacation Rental: HOUSE or APARTMENT

by tfs

Who We Are: Eight young professionals guys (mostly doctors) with extensive travel experience in South America.

What We Seek: A House or a couple apartments to rent for our annual vacation in early April 2007.

Apartment rental seems quite difficult in Caracas. Is the same true for housing? We will find a hotel as a last resort, but we typically prefer the comfort and convenience of a house or apartment. We appreciate any and all advice.

Thank You,
Terry

RE: Vacation Rental: HOUSE or APARTMENT

by atufft

Go to VT member carolinaEspada whose a resident there and ask her this question. There are apartments and they will be expensive, but security is an issue there, and coming and going from a swanky hotel isn't so safe in Caracas. Good luck.

RE: Vacation Rental: HOUSE or APARTMENT

by luis.ydler

Renting houses or apartments is somewhat difficult nowadays anywhere in Venezuela. Costs are either high or low depending on which location you're in. Caracas is major city; consequently, nice, safe areas are expensive. Though, eight young professional guys won't find it quite hard to get a house as soon as they find it. Finding help before you arrive is a good idea. Contacting local rent agencies, checking local newspapers such as El Nacional or El Universal might also help.

RE: solo female traveller in caracas-para compadres june 12-16?

by Esimpo

Hi, I'm also a solo female traveller and am going to be in Venezuela (unfortunately I'll just miss you, I'm there on the 19th). I'm afraid I can't help you with your prob, but I was wandering if you know where you're staying if you're going to be in Caracas. I was told Altamira was the safest area, but you have to pay for a double room even if there's only one of you. If you've heard anything about safe places, could you let me know please?(elliesimpson3@hotmail.com). I hope you meet some other travellers, thanks, Ellie

by luis.ydler

Up until nopw, you may have already arrived and left town. But even late, I'd like to comment: don't be worried, solo ladies are taken care of by people here, specially if they know you're not local. Just don't act fool and blend in; enjoy people, enjoy natura, and follow fellow's advices on dangerous spots. Should you want to know some more places in the country, let me know: carioca_@hotmail.com ... I live two hours from capital city.

Thanks,
