Here are some pictures I found on the internet for now.
This is the C.C.C.T Hotel we first stayed at before we found the pent house we ended up at. (I'll have to find out the name and location of that from my parents). It was really cool because it is a hotel on the top and a mall on bottom!
Here is the private school we went to called Escuela Campo Alegre. It had all the way from kindergarten to senior in high school. I was only 10, and felt completely overwhelmed at first trying to find my way around, and at that age it seemed like there were millions and millions of stairs!
Here's a picture of downtown Caracas.
And here is what really stood out to me: how drastic the difference in living was of the rich from the poor. These ranchitos filled the hillsides. Homes practically made out of cardboard boxes stacked on top of each other. :(
|Before leaving Caracas to come home we had the chance to fly to the island of Margarita when my Grandparents, Aunt Charisse, and cousin Jenny came to visit. It was beautiful there!|
Not too long after we moved there, it was pretty scary for a few weeks, because riots broke out. Here's a little bit about that from the web:
I was too young to understand much going on, but we were pretty excited about the no school part!
Totally got sidetracked....
So here are a few pictures from the reunion.
Aubrey is usually a Momma's girl, but she snuggled up fine with Kimberly.
