Happy New Year 

Seeing as the New Year is fast approaching it seems that both Chavistas and opposition alike are refraining from saying anything of importance or even saying anything stupid that I could make fun of. So I might as well post some more pictures showing the tremendous natural bueaty of Venezuela. Even if you have no interest in the Venezuelan political process it is a country very much worth visiting. I am not going to say it is most beautiful country, or the country with the most attractions of interest for tourists. Its not even close to being that.

But I do think it is probably the most underrated country when it comes those things. From the table top mountians to the Orinoco Delta, from Angel Falls to prisine beaches, and from the peaks of the Andes to the sand dunes of Coro it does have a lot to offer. It amazes me the extent to which Venezuela has always been under the radar, so to speak, even when it comes to well travelled and adventerous tourists. Then again, not having the country ruined by some of the horrible vices that tourism tends to bring to poor countries is nice.

Anyways, these pictures are from La Mision de Nuestra Senora del Carmen which is an old monestary and now a botanical garden outside San Felipe in Yaracuy state. I have no idea what any of these plants are so don't ask, just enjoy:

No that's not a snake. Its a vine.

Is it just me or do most of these beautiful plants, based on their coloring, appear to be Chavistas?

Anyways, happy New Year everyone.
