That's nice mate! Oh my when this country used to get exchange students, there is NO way that's happening now believe me hehe.
Venezuela is an excellent country to visit... back in the day of course, it still has incredible beaches, the Angel Falls in the Gran Sabana region, Los Roques, the Sierra Nevada of Mérida and so much more, but today's crime statistics in my country are enough to keep any visitor away from here for good. :=|
I hope you had a very pleasant time here mate.
This mate is a gal. ;-)
And I had a wonderful time! It was amazing!
I spent the first six months in a small village in Sur del Lago (with several trips to Mérida) and the other five months in a town in Aragua.
I travelled to the Gran Sabana (it's breathtakingly beautiful!), the Orinoco Delta, the rain forest and some other places.
I really want to visit Venezuela again and it show it to my husband and my son. You could say that I lost a part of my heart to your country. Edit
t: AFS (American Field Service) still offers Student Exchange with Venezuela, at least for German students.
