what a mess getting to quito



it took a while but now i'm here and first impression after about 2 hours is really good if i compare to caracas. my hotel is a nice little place in betwen the 2 centers so its cool and real nice atmosphere but then again i havent sleep there yet! like i said getting here was not the easiest first my flight got canceld from caracas on the sun so i would go on mon instead so far so good leave caracas and get to bogota to change flights got 2 hours delayed but after a while we head of to quito and its a very bumpy ride but i was to tired to be nearvous!anyway we start our decent and our pilot aborts and tells us its bad weather so we go for a second run wich also fails so we head back to bogota and land there at 2 in the morning get driven to a hotel get there at 3 and then they tell us that we have to meet them at 5 to get to the airport so 2 hours of sleep and only airplane food so im not in my best mood but ok lets go of we fly towards quito but upon arrival the weather turns bad so we get flown to another town can't spell the name and we sit there for about 1 till 2 hours and then we fly and actually lands in quito and then we hear the guys talking about that it's quite hard to land in quito and our pilot had chickend out last night but i guess i rather have him go chicken than take a chance but anyway now i'm here so its good and had a big veggie meal good stuff it only costed 1 us 60 cents sweet so now i'm gonna go and eat some more loving it talk to ya soon

annoying internet cafes


i just wrote a long notice just before now but here u pay beforehand and i didint have time to post my writing before it cut me out so now i have to rewrite it so here we go!
i woke up yeasterday and went to reconfirm my flight on sun only to find out that i had been canceld and they could not find any refrence on me needless to say i am not to pleased and u can also say OTUR! any way i had to run back and forth to try and fix a new ticket wich wasent to hard but a lot of aggrevation wich is not good but now i will hopefully leave just one day later but if i have real bad luck i have to pay 300us but let´s hope not since i havent done anything wrong. we will know on mon.
next problem was that i had counted my money to last untill sun so now i have one and a half day more and of course creditcards from swe dont work in the atm´s here so u have to go to the bank and here in vz going to the bank on fri afternoon takes time so a lot of standing in line and waiting and they have a very interesting queing system here! after i got my money i wanted to chill out a bit so i thougt to myself i´ll have a beer in the bar, where i meet a couple of local guys and after a couple of beers and a lot of talking they tell me i´m gonna get very drunk tonite and of course they where right drunk i got but it was very good drunk and lots of laughter but to be quite honest i only understod one of the dudes he is a teatcher in litterature at the university and so he invited me to come and play football with him tomorrow wich is today and i will go and play football very soon i think maybe not play to much since i feel a bit delicate today and i think running might upset my belly today but we will see any way it´s time for me to go so hasta luego!

good food


hi folks what can i say i like caracas in the day time it´s cool to walk around and look at people and the food is good but nighttime is less so,so i have changed my ticket to quito till sun 18th so thats in a week untill then i will eat good food and enjoy caracas daytime and chill out nighttime. its pretty crazy thoug yeasterday i saw a guy trying to shoot someone across the street wild !! but the real crazy stuff was that no one really reacted except the cops and they reacted real fast the dude got surrounded in like 10 sec or less by cops with bigger guns crazy!! so thats why i chill out in the night time still havent found a netcafe with wireless so photos are on hold.

Caracas VZ


caracas its a dirty town i have only been here for one day i been walking a lot and must say one sec i´m smiling and the next feeling a bit lonely but it´s nice to see so many people and feel the buzz, problem tough is i can´t understand anything so i have interesting 2 months ahead of me and of course i lost my little book of phrases so we´r in it deep.i´m trying to get to equador early but it seems it can be hard as there is no flights so i have to wait till monday before i can have a look again so untill then i will keep on walking and looking at prety girls that i can´t talk to ha!ha!the hotel is simple and not to expensive 19 us dollars it was hard to get a hotel,i stayed at the airport for one hour of phoning before i got a room so we´ll see how long i have to stay if i cant change the flight i´m running for the mountains i think, we will know soon i guess untill next time stay relaxed and peace out!oh and i almost forgot i paid my first police bribe today about 20000 pesos so that was kinda funny they(the police)were very polite about it but also very secretive so a new experience!!!

publicity about Tobago


sorry for no photo havent found a wireless cafe in VZ so like before photos will be come later.what can i say if ur ever heading this way skip trinidad(unless u know someone who knows the place)and head directly to tobago and bucco point and no need for expensive hotels when u can stay at ces´s place called millers guest house it´s an unpolished dimond and the people u meet there are really nice guys.and the island is beutifull green and lush but a bit to many mosqitos so buy good repelent and the water is nice and warm whenever u choose to take a swim.and do take a jungeltrip with a dude called fitzroy ask for a hard hike it´s not hard just fun. another good way to see the island is to bike just remember to use a helmet and if u going late bring lights,if u want to rent a bike talk with mike! and now this publicity has to end!!all and all just go there and tranquille will come by it´s self!
