Farewell to South America.

Yesterday was our last complete day in Caracas, making it also the final day of the second leg of our tripn and it was a good one thanks in large part to our new friend Andres. For the last three days we have been staying at his family's home in great comfort and surrounded by great views from up on one of the mountains in Caracas. Andres has been kind enough to take time out of his bus days to show us around, and take us to lunch and dinner and yesterday was no exception. At dinner last night in a great Italian restaurant, we toasted to a great ending to a fantastic ride through South America. We then toasted some more as VIP guests at the launching party for Smirnoff Black Ice where the main entertainment was a cool new band from Venezuela called Malanga. We danced until the wee hours and talked about meeting up with Andres somewhere in the world sometime in the future. I hope we do, with him and with all the great people we have met so far.
Besitos to all!
