  • World's Best Hammocks are Made in...

    Prior to 1492, sailors slept on the ship deck in misery. But, Spanish sailors found natives of the Caribbean sleeping in hammocks, and a great invention for comfortable sleep was discovered. The hammock is very restful for the back and children love to swing in one. The correct way to sleep in one is with the body stretched out in a perpendicular...

  • CARACAS: ENGLISH BOOKSTORES

    THE AMERICAN BOOK SHOP has moved to Centro Comercial Centro Plaza which is a shopping mall located in Los Palos Grandes neighbourhood. It has quite a selection of English books.

  • Quibor Ceramics and Other Handicrafts

    Barquisimeto claims to be Venezuela's music capitol. There are plenty of good Llanero beef restaurants, and so traditional music--the cuatro, harp, and maracas--are likely to be found in the evenings. But, our travels to the dry desert state of Lara are primarily to visit Quibor and Tintorero where folk art is made. The ceramics of Quibor are...

    When buying gasoline in Venezuela it is very cheap. Do the math. $1.00 = 2150 Bolivars. At 8732 Bolivars for 90.02 litros, that would be $.045 per litro, or about $.17 per gallon.

  • Markets in Western Venezuela

    In the mountainous western region of Venezuela, it's fun to wander around the local markets. The largest and most well known is the Mercado Principal in Merida. Here you can shop for food and souvenirs while soaking up the atmosphere. If you venture outside of the city (you would be crazy not to), you will find smaller markets in the mountain...

  • Buying Iguana to eat

    Iguana are not easy to find. If you ask around, and someone can catch one, then you can purchase an Iguana to eat. They tell me you have to know how to cook them. The flavor is good, but I don't know if you can get Iguana in any restarant. The eggs are also eaten, but the taste is very strong. You never know until you try it.
