Caracas - Venezuela

Caracas (pronounced ) is the capital and largest city of Venezuela. It is located in the north of the country, following the contours of the narrow Caracas Valley on the Venezuelan coastal mountain range (Cordillera de la Costa). The valley's temperatures are springlike. Terrain suitable for building on lies between 760 and 910 m (2,500 and 3,000 ft) above sea level. The valley is close to the Caribbean Sea, separated from the coast by a steep 2200 m (7400 ft) high mountain range, Cerro Ávila; to the south there are more hills and mountains.El Distrito Metropolitano de Caracas (The Metropoli

Heres the lowdown, early 20s, never had a girlfriend, no job, no school, nothing, really intelligent, creative and cute.... for a long time I ain't been anywhere or done anything cuz I've been so depressed. Mainly from insomnia and not being able to get girls. So I decided to go to Caracas because its hot there now. Then after a month when its warm in Lima I'll fly there. Then Colombia or Ecuador. I don't know what order yet all I know is Caracas is the one that has good warm weather now. And I want to go somewhere now. But will this be a bad idea to spend all my money and start at Caracas? Will things go in my favor? Like will I have good experiences for a change and be able to sleep and have numerous girls approach me everywhere all the time hitting on me? Will any of this happen or is it just an illusion and will I make a big mistake going there and be really disappointed and regret it? If I go there and it turns out to be a nightmare I won't be able to handle it. um....... i dont think it would be a good idea to stay home. spending money on a therapist wont get me girls... but it will garentee i get one old hag. not exactly up my alley....

"You should do well with gays since that is the gay capital of South America."
moi :
"No one can predict what is going to happen on your trip. Will you be able to sleep? Hopefully, but maybe your sleeping disorder is a medical thing, if so your trip won't help. Will you get girls? Maybe, maybe not, that kind of thing is unpredictable. Will you have a good time? I hope so. You really need to relax. If you go there uptight and scared then nothing good will happen. Maybe you should go on a tour group so you will have lots of people to hang out with, go to dinner with and go to the clubs. Just don't let all of your future happiness depend on this trip. If that is what you are doing you would be better off staying at home and using the money for some therapy sessions to really work out your problems."

malandrazaine2004 :
"Oh.. boy.. will you ever be disappointed.. There is a civil war in Caracas and the rest of the country right now.. Its not at all what you think it is... why dont you go to youtube and punch in Caracas and you'll see or google it and even read the english newspaper fom there.. You'll be surprised. I've lived there and I speak the language fluently and even I won't go back to visit right now.. Girls are not going to be running up to you at anytime.. They're too busy running home safely from wherever they where. Not a good idea... Go somewhere else..for your own safety.. There is tremendous looting and muggings and if you look remotely different or have an accent and advertise that you are a tourist there will be a target on.. People have been killed for their Nike shoes or any other piece of clothing or belonging that is a brand name or having any obvious street value. Stay away for now.. please take my advice. Take care"

"Are you taking your medication? You are so focused on South America, and getting girls. You've asked at least 30 questions on this subject. Get some help; you are need."

"I don't understand...If you are smart, young, single, cute etc how come you've never had a girlfriend? Well, my advice, go to Margarita Island (venezuela) instead of Caracas. Margarita is the place where people from mainland go to have fun. There are nice beaches and night clubs too. And remember, the best way to find a good girl is to be nice to her."
justasking :
"Actually... the first answerer is kind of right. Go to Margarita. I think you have a better chance of getting girls there. I think that for the kind of adventure you want, you are not picking the right countries. Latinas may be hot, but they are after all generally catholic good girls and have actually principles (hey! I'm talking about the girls I know). That adventure you dream of seems like a Spring Break video that has a better chance of happening in the US or Europe. Besides, Latin American countries have sooo many problems that, you know, well... people are more worried about getting to work, eating and surviving three hours of chaotic and unimaginable traffic and street safety (in the case of Caracas) which leaves no time for fantasies like this, most of days. Go to Europe. Really. By the way. You sound just like that guy from Love Actually. You know? The one that goes to America because of the sex. Well... taking that as an example, you are sure to find what you are looking for wherever you go if you have your mind set on it. I'd put my money on Margarita Island. (Vacation relaxes people)... Goodluck!"
andflors :
"Stay home and look at girls on the Internet. They don't reject you! Seriously sounds like you need some help. If you have no life at home you'll probably run into the same problems anywhere."
Alej :
"I live in Caracas and if all you want is to meet girls then go to Brazil. Venezuela is a beautiful country with great beaches and warm weather all year long. There is night life here but the city is very insecure. If you want to party and have fun I recommend you go to Margarita Island."
Enrique :
"Travel is a great idea, but it is not going to solve your problems. Your idea or illusion of girls approaching you, it might be easier to happen going to w... house or strip club. Go ahead, travel, discover, but try to be real, your fantasy is not going to happen that easy in Caracas."

During a South American summit meeting today in Caracas, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez suggested that member countries create a joint military force to fend off possible future U.S. aggression. I wonder why they're so nervous? It's not like we invade innocent countries or anything...

L’università di Monte Avila è ai margini della grande vallata dove scorre caotico il traffico di Caracas e affacciandosi sembra quasi di osservare dall’alto la capitale di un paese, il Venezuela, in bilico sul baratro. Il traffico è raddoppiato in pochi anni, molte auto sono....
