Caripe, Venezuela

Wow, pics were a little difficult to look at on my last entry. Not quite sure what happened there, thanks to those who took the time!... even tho pics still don't do this place justice.
Still looving the time here in Ven. We are on the 3rd of our 4 trips, starting yesterday.  Can't say as we're really roughing it though cause we're staying in a little "posada" with beds and doors, which is a bit of a treat.  We're doing some of the more touristic stuff this trip, like taking a guided tour through the "Guacharo" cave, hike up to a water fall, and just visited a coffee plantation, which was my fav part of the trip so far! The whole process is pretty cool. Did you know coffee trees grow best in shade. That coffee beans have 2 outter shells that have to be removed before the bean can be roasted... etc etc!
Class begins.. 5 min ago, which means I should realy go join. We're having class today in "PLaza Bolivar" which every town has. It's a monument in the middle of town with a concreted park like palce around where people meet.  "Bolivar" is a very historical figure, and they also name their money the "Bolivar".
Hope I can touch base again soon!
Love Am.
