After only a short planning, for once, I this time took off with my eldest son with the main objective of reaching the highest Waterfall in the world - The Angel Falls. Not the best of times to go to Venezuela possibly with the political turmoil and the many people fleeing the country. On the other hand - you get the country to yourself - without hordes of other tourists. With many changes in the program, not to mention many cancelled domestic flights - distances which had to be taken by car instead, we did finally reach our final goal - The Angel Falls - and it was just as spectacular as I had hoped. 1700 km by car, 75 km by pirogue boats and a couple of hours of hiking - we came to stand just below this amazing waterfall.
