Another scenic view
Today we went on a day trip to Pico del Aguila in Mérida. It’s the highest peak in this region of Venezuela. The clouds were very low and fell down upon the mountain, so we didn’t get much of a view, but it looked cool anyway.
My Spanish is improving; I noticed with the kids, playing today. I feel a little more confident with it and with the people.
The area where we are is very mountainous, with little towns interspersed throughout. We ate dinner/lunch in a town called Mucuchillo. It was lively. We had soup and cheese and arepas (bread of sorts). Tomorrow we’re going with community members to watch the youth play baseball at a nearby town.
So far, it’s been very interesting. I enjoy interacting with the people, especially the kids. I’ve also enjoyed seeing the countryside and learning more about Venezuela and its culture.
I’ll write more soon, but now, time for bed.
