Public Bus in Caracas, Venezuela. This 4 photographs are the result of a 30 minutes trip in a public bus in Caracas, if you notice, the Venezuelan think a lot. (politicians, economics, insecurity, lack of opportunities, Christmas, etc)

Just as a curious tip, the bus ticket in Caracas is regulated and costs 9BsF (nine bolivares Fuertes), that will be 15 cents of a dollar or 10 cents of an euro.

Teatro Nacional, Caracas. 1910.

Teatro Nacional, Caracas. 1910.

The Caracas National Theatre is one of those works that made you feel pride and now we feel it again. It was closed and stuck in the past but few months ago it was re-opened. I took those three pictures during an assignment and I’m sharing them with you. The National Theatre is the ideal place to forget, in two hours, the chaos and the violence from Caracas city.

The last day of my grandma’s house. This is a look to my grandma’s house in its last day, she died recently this year and the house that lasted so long, now belongs to someone else. A humble house in downtown Caracas where she, coming from another state inside the country, lived until the last day of her life with her life long companion, Neno(Nazareno).

I’m sure that wherever they are, Neno is cooking a big pot of tomato’s sauce for a great pasta (typical Italian), to later be eaten with Josefina.

Rest in peace, love you both!!
