Arriving to Maracaibo...

The drive from the airport to the hotel wasn't long, but I could notice a high number of old cars, amazing. This cars use a lot of gas, but gas is cheap in Venezuela. In fact it could even be cheaper than water - crazy! Maracaibo is an oil city, most of the people here work in something related to the oil industry. People are friendly. Although they might have economical problems, they are always happy and want to help you. But you have to be careful if you want to go out by yourself during the night.
After driving for approx 20 min, we arrived to the hotel, which was a very nice one. All my colleagues were already there. We were a big group, coming from different countries: Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Trinidad and other cities in Venezuela. It was so nice meeting them in person. I worked with them daily and it was so nice finally meeting them face to face, haha. Darrin was the only one who didn't speak Spanish, haha. But we would help him. As I said before, everybody was in the hotel already, just the Peruvian girl was missing, but I did it! Late, but I did it, haha!
