So my very brief and slightly illegal trip to Venezuela is coming to a close. Jorge and I got up at the crack of dawn (really quite before the crack) to catch out 9:30 AM flight. Why did we get up at 4:30 AM to catch our 9:30 AM flight ? Well, it seems that the Venezuelians had a small engineering issue about their main bridge on the highway that goes to Caracas Intl airport. Appartently, it fell into the water. This photo shows were the bridge used to be. While they are working double time on building a new one, travelers are enduring 2+ hour drives to the airport. Of course, this is better than when the bridge first collapsed. I guess the old detour was 6 hours.
