And my own memories of Venezuela are forever rose-tinted after flying in to the Angel Falls strip from Puerto Ordaz in a ServiVensa DC-3 and meeting a Lufthansa stewardess who had hiked the whole way up there and needed somewhere to stay...
Had a similar experience! We went up by canoe, an 8 hour trip, and I ended up sitting next to a Venezuelan beauty.......we dated for a year. I'll never forget the DC-3 trip over the falls. I was there when Chavez won and it was obvious things were going to change. Very, very sad to see what the nation has become.
