Venezuela / now belongs to everybody

Our flight from Brazil to Venezuela was fine. It wasn’t crowded, so I did the same and could sleep for a while. This flight wasn’t so long, just 2:45 hrs. We arrived to Caracas around 6:10am. We wouldn’t stay in Caracas, we had to take a domestic flight to Barcelona. But we had to do customs and claim our luggage first. As a Peruvian, I don't need a visa to get into the country, but I need to show either an invitation letter if I'm going for business, or the hotel's reservations for the period of time I'd stay in the country. I was happy I printed them while we were in Santa Cruz, hehehe. Caracas’ airport has 2 buildings, one for the domestic flights and other for the international. So it was a long way from the arrival point to the counter of Aserca airline.

I have been told that sometimes your luggage can be opened.

So, just in case I wrapped my big bag. One thing you have to think about here is the Exchange Currency. The difference between the official rate and the black market is big. The guy who was wrapping my bag, asked me if I wanted to exchange some money. I didn’t show much interest, because I wanted to get a good rate. I bargained with him for a while and got a good price, hehehe. Blair was surprised and asked me to do the same for him, hahaha.

 

Our connection flight was scheduled for 11am. So, I just approached to the counter and asked if they have an earlier flight. Well, they were just closing the flight and agreed to let us in, hehehe. We arrived just in time, Ufffffffffffff. The flight from Caracas to Barcelona was a short one, so no problem. Although Aserca is a domestic airline and the planes were small. The flight was ok. The staff was nice too.

 

Finally, we were getting closer to our destination…
